Our Museum Videos and Recordings
Voices from the past
The Western Sonoma County Historical Society has partnered with California Revealed, a State Library initiative to help California’s public libraries to digitize, preserve, and to provide access to the audio recordings of our local citizens, called oral histories, which provides on line access to everyone.
Now the Historical Society can offer, to the public, the opportunity to listen to these amazing recordings in full length right from the comfort of your living room. They can be heard by visiting www.archive.org or www.californiarevealed.org. When at the sites just do a search for Western Sonoma County Historical Society and click on our logo.
We invite you to virtually visit our newest exhibit celebrating the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution granting women the right to vote.
Here is the link to view the living exhibit: “Suffrage Headquarters.”
