Home with Garden San Carlos Estate 1950's Home

Between the late 1930's and the mid 1950's, local photographers took pictures of many of the homes in San Carlos. These photos were gifted to the Museum and placed in storage. In the ensuing years, these pictures were forgotten. During the back room cataloging project, these boxes of negatives, slides and photos were "rediscovered." The dauntless task of identifying the addresses of these homes and businesses is being done by volunteers.

The Museum is offering past and current residents of these homes and businessess the opportunity to purchase copies of these photos. To find out if your home or business is included in our archive, please send us an email with the following:
