Third Grade Tour
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 Native Americans who were here when the Spanish arrived. Dioramas constructed by Les Krames help give the students an understanding of the native Saklans and the of the Mexicans who settled in California.
The second room contains displays and artifacts showing evidence of animals who lived 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.
On a recent Romeria (historical and fun field trip) we traveled to exhibits celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Pan Pacific International Exhibition.
