A new interactive exhibit is opening Sunday, Jan. 20, at the Healdsburg Museum called “Healdsburg: 100 Years Ago Past and Present,” which highlights local life a century ago.  A reception is planned for 5:30 p.m. at the Museum. The public is welcome.

The exhibit will run through April 20, featuring artifacts from Healdsburg life during the 1910s that cover topics that include agriculture, architecture, fashion, events and family life.

Included will be items from and about the Healdsburg Water Carnival and the photography of Mervyn Silberstein, a talented local photographer who chronicled people, places and events in the area from 1903-1913.

According to Curator Holly Hoods, the museum is encouraging local residents, past and present, to join the exhibit by “sharing your own current local photographs of agriculture, architecture, fashion, events and childhood.  One hundred years from now, what do you want people to see and know about this community?”

Photos can be brought to the museum to be scanned or sent via email to holly@healdsburgmuseum.org.
