Her Side of the Story: Tales of California Pioneer Women
@Museum of the San Ramon Valley
This exhibit illuminates the hardships, joys, and life of pioneer women in California. These women will tell in their own words the story of traveling by land and sea to settle in California prior to statehood…The ledger, however, does not represent all women. As such, an important section of the exhibition is comprised of diverse portraits of unidentified women. These women represent the thousands of pioneers whose stories were never recorded; each one had a story to tell which is lost to time. For more nformation: https://museumsrv.org
