Although this museum is small in size it makes up for it in sheer volume of information kept about this impressive tiny town. I’ve included what stood out to me historically and people that you are simply better off for knowing about their life and accomplishments.

This in no way scratch’s the surface of information provided inside this museum. You could spend hours and hours just reading the text books.

We missed the usual docent that accompanies you throughout the museum lecturing about the history. But no matter the two gentlemen that were there that day did an excellent job of narrating Santa Maria history. Thank you so much!
