My husband and I recently spent the day in Williams going down memory lane. The population is now over 5,000. A large housing development is now on the east side of town. Downtown is not the same as in "my day" mostly due to the building of Interstate 5 in the late 1960's. The Tidewater gas station where my father worked is now a vacant lot but two doors down Louis Cairo's restaurant is still there serving Italian meals.

The Reading Room is how the public can connect with the larger collection that is not readily available through exhibits. The new Reading Room is under construction but researchers still have access to the collection. Research is by appointment only. To make an appointment, contact the Museum Director.
A return visit is in my future to do some in-depth research. It's only one hour north of Sacramento. Contact the museum for more information:
