Our Current Exhibition

Her Side of the Story: Tales of California Pioneer Women

Among the treasures in The Society of California Pioneers archives are rare, first-person narratives by pioneer women. After uniting to ensure that future generations could recognize, and would acknowledge, the role women played in the formation of the state, The Association of Pioneer Women of California collected and preserved the experiences of its members. Bound in an unpublished, handwritten book, their remarkable stories are the foundation of this museum exhibition and online resource for teachers.
