Are you related to one of Petaluma’s founding families?

Gaze into the eyes of Petaluma’s pioneers with an online exhibit presented by the Petaluma Historical Library & Museum. The important genealogical resource makes accessible over 400 portraits of Petaluma’s first families and shares a bit of background concerning the history and background of the photographers and subjects.

In addition to photography, the website includes an interactive 3-D video and audio guide that allows you to step inside the exhibit as it first ran in the museum in 2017.

See highlights from the exhibit in the gallery above or go to petalumapioneers.org to explore the full collection.
