This new exhibition marks the centennial of the city of San Marino and examines three families that helped found it.

From the Huntington website:

The exhibition tells the story of the Wilson, Shorb, and Patton families, who helped transform a region of one-time Spanish land grants into an agricultural paradise. Rare family photographs, letters, legal documents, and artifacts will be among the objects displayed.
A downloadable gallery guide is available here.

The exhibition runs through May 13. Note: The Huntington Library is closed Tuesdays and opens at 10:30 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
