On display from August 27 to November 8, our newest exhibit will celebrate the unique immigrant cultures that have shaped—and continue to shape—Healdsburg. It will include a series of moving, informative and colorful displays, featuring artifacts, documents and photographs on loan from the community as well as from the Museum’s collection. Tempered by bravery, tenacity and hard work, many vivid stories will illuminate immigrants’ strengths and sacrifices. Historic trends and contexts for the people’s migrations, including pressures that immigrants faced before and after coming to live in their new country, will also be included.
In addition to pioneer immigrants, this exhibit will prominently feature the vibrant presence of contemporary immigrants. A number of the captivating profiles in the display will come from Shonnie Brown’s newly published book, Healdsburg’s Immigrants, which will be available for sale in the Museum gift shop.
Plan your next visit to the Museum to learn more about these events during their regular hours Wednesday through Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Healdsburg Museum & Historical Society is located at 221 Matheson St. Admission is always free.
