There is a lot going on in Sacto this weekend. The CSRRM will be open for free, showing its newest exhibits. The Stanford Mansion, totally redone to its original excellence (due to Muybridge photographs) will be open, also free. On the Garden Roof of the parking garage will be numerous exhibits from all over the State.

Re: Stanford Journals

The announcement [above] refers to Governor Stanford's daily journals. Would anyone know where these are housed and the time frame they cover?

The above documents all appear to be part of the California State Archives, a part of the Secretary of State's department. The California Museum for History, Women and the Arts is a part of the State Archives. All of this is in Sacramento. The announcement relates to the "Eureka" event this weekend, in large part celebrating the opening of the Leland Stanford House here in Sacramento - that now operated by State Parks. The Railroad Museum also has opened some major new exhibits – and admission is free for the weekend.
