Third Grade Tour

Local History Tour for Students in the Third Grade


Every April, the Moraga School District third graders visit the History Center to complete their unit of study on the History of Moraga.

The Center’s three rooms contain displays especially prepared for their visit.

The first room contains artifacts of the natives who were here when the Spanish arrived. There are dioramas constructed by Les Krames to give the students a clearer understanding of the native Saklans and the Spanish.

The second room contains displays and artifacts showing evidence of animals in Moraga before humans arrived here. There are also models of the Sacramento Northern Railroad cars.

The third room houses displays of items used in the ranch houses that were part of the first settlements in the Moraga Valley. Farming and ranching artifacts are displayed.
