A GIFT FROM RICHARD NIXON

DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY   2011

The San Fernando Valley has been enmeshed in politics since the Spanish Colonial Era. The decision to build the Catholic missions in California was in large measure a political more than a spiritual act. 
In 1847, Col. John C. Fremont accepted the political capitulation of California in North Hollywood, at the present site of Campo de Cahuenga (at the present entrance to the Universal Station of the Red Line Subway.) Nine years later Fremont would be the first Republican nominee for the Presidency of the United States.

Since politics is very much part of San Fernando Valley history, your Museum collects, preserves and will present political artifacts. Share your political documents and artifacts today and with future generations. Join The Museum Community today:
