A Guide to Museums, Historical Sites,
History Parks, and Historical Homes
Over 200 fascinating sites to visit!
This is a book that every visitor, teacher, historian, and citizen interested in local history should have at within reach as they head out the door in search of a fun-filled interesting day exploring the greater San Francisco Bay Area.
Richard DiGiacomo has visited almost every place in this book personally. He has written the must-have book on museums and historic sites from Monterey County in the south to Sonoma County in the north. More than just a tour guide, the book is broken into sections with essays that acquaint the reader with the history that is covered by the representative museums or sites. DiGiacomo goes beyond the traditional city, county, state, and national museums and historic sites that feature famous people, historic homes and events. He also covers museums devoted to agriculture, business, Hispanic California, immigration, military posts, mining, Native Americans, transportation, sports, as well as science and technology. He thoughtfully includes key information on each museum such as its location, web address, hours of operation, cost, and what a visitor can expect to encounter.
