2009 - The Year of Valley History

Fred Berk - Historic Postcard Display - August 2009 - Archives of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley

When your Museum incorporated in 2005, we determined that we would be a Museum Community serving the entire 1,800, 000 residents of the greater San Fernando Valley. And, one of the ways we intend to serve the widespread communities of the Valley, is to "take history to the people." One of our first successes was the creation of a mobile exhibit entitled, "Mr. Whitsett and Our Thirsty Valley". When we secure more financial strength, we will produce mobile exhibits on a regular basis, until folks encounter our rich and exciting Valley history all over the area (in schools, religious institutions, public buildings, businesses and recreational facilities. Expect more walking and bus tours, publications interactive history stations.

While we are building our bank account, we will be doing whatever we can, whenever we can to tell the Valley's amazing story.
