MUSEUM OF THE SAN RAMON VALLEY
Back in 1915, the San Francisco Bay Area was very excited about the Panama Pacific International Exposition. The Panama Canal had just opened in 1913 and San Francisco had proudly rebuilt after the 1906 Earthquake. The City hosted a grand exposition that drew nearly 19,000,000 visitors to the fair site in only 9 months. It happened in what we know today as the Marina District. Visitors rode the enormous Aeroscope, watched aeroplanes soar in loops overhead and dive earthward, saw a phenomenal light show and rubbed shoulders with luminaries such as Luther Burbank, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, President Theodore Roosevelt and many others. Even the famous Liberty Bell came to San Francisco.
Now in 2015, the same region has again mounted a kaleidoscope of attractions to celebrate anew that same spirit of innovation with an equal measure of enthusiasm just as in 1915.
