Often visitors to a theatrical center such as Rancho Cordellera del Norte miss some of the most important aspects of the stay. Since the Rancho does not have connections to well known celebrities or major historical events, folks skip over the many treasures presented from a lifetime of memorabilia collecting.
During my visit to the Rancho, I saw things that deserve study and attention. For example, in the theater there is a Tunisian carpet of endless surprises. Each segment of the hand-made rug deservedly included in the Op-Art genre so famous just a few years ago. Behind each knot lies a story of labor, often by children, to make such a treasure.
