Spotlighting graphically-striking sheet music covers published from 1849 through the 1930s, Singing the Golden State celebrates popular songs about California from the Gold Rush through the vaudeville era, a period when sheet music was an integral part of popular culture and a piano was considered essential for the middle-class parlor.
Developed by The Society of California Pioneers and toured by Exhibit Envoy, the exhibit is drawn from two exceptional archives: the Frederick Sherman Music Collection of the Society of California Pioneers and the private collection of James M. Keller, the exhibit’s curator.
There are two interpretive exhibits within the south wing that focus on local and regional history:
- Road Ways
- Gem of the Foothills
