OPENING — Valley Memories: the Catherine Mulholland Collection

Catherine MulhollandOver the years, Catherine Mulholland, who loved  libraries and the Oviatt in particular, donated her personal archives and those of her family to the Library, understanding the importance of preserving the past for future generations.  This remarkable collection, dating back to the 1860s, is a journey through Valley history as seen in the photographs, scrapbooks, memorabilia, clothing and ranch records of this pioneer family.  We invite you to come share the story of the Ijams, Haas, Perret, Ferguson and Mulholland families.
