This June, we will transform one of our galleries into Main Street circa 1914 and present a visually fascinating and historically informative exhibit on the history of Willits, with a focus on Main Street architecture, commerce, and culture. Large format photographs of featured buildings will be displayed based on pictures from 1914, found in the Museum’s archives. Exhibit images and accompanying text panels will include a history for each site and enlivening commentary from oral histories and interviews. The Main Street of Willits has much in common with the “Main Streets” of communities throughout Mendocino County, where the buildings live as varied lives as their residents.
