New Exhibit at Placer County Museum at Historic Courthouse

April 30, 2010

The Placer County Museums Division is proud to announce the opening of a new exhibit on the history of the Native Sons of the Golden West: For the Love of California!

This fraternity was created in 1875 to help preserve our state’s rich history. Auburn Parlor #59 and Silver Star Parlor #63 in Lincoln were chartered in 1885 and are still active parlors today.

The exhibit highlights some of the events, buildings, and sites the Native Sons have worked to preserve and commemorate. On display are photographs and objects from the early years of the fraternity in Placer County along with one of many wagons the Auburn Native Sons have restored.

The exhibit opens May 1st in the Placer County Museum located on the first floor of the Historic Courthouse at 101 Maple Street in Auburn.

The museum is open every day except holidays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Please come by and help us celebrate the 135th anniversary of the Native Sons of the Golden West and the 125th anniversary of the Auburn Parlor #59 and the Silver Star Parlor #63.

For more information, please call 530-889-6500.
