Then & Now
The Community Memorial Museum of Sutter County is featuring a new exhibit of local historic photographs, paired with contemporary views of the same site. The exhibit "Then & Now" includes photographs of Sutter and Yuba Counties from over 100 years ago of buildings, bridges, and other area features. It compares contemporary color photos of the same site or feature with the original black and white photo. In some cases, the buildings still stand much as they were over a century ago. In other cases, the structure has disappeared and a new one appears in its place or perhaps nothing remains at all.
The exhibit opens Friday evening, August 24th, 2012 with a reception from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and will remain through November 24th. Admission is free. The public is invited to step back in time and see what our local area looked like a century ago, when roads were unpaved and Victorian-era buildings lined the streets. Some of these architectural treasures remain in our landscape, a legacy that we can shepherd for local residents a century from now.
Open hours are Wednesday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 4:00 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call the Museum at 530- 822-7141
