I never know who my visitors to the San Lorenzo Valley Museum. Sometimes it is members bringing visiting family or friends, sometimes it is visitors who used to live in the San Lorenzo Valley years ago, and sometimes it is Santa Cruz County residents exploring their county history by visiting many of our wonderful museums. We love it when our visitors become members because they realize the importance of preserving and sharing local history. Our newest members were once business owners in Boulder Creek, though before I moved here in 1990. They were the owners of the Black Forest Bakery, then the Harvest Bakery - both in Boulder Creek. I'm looking forward to talking with them about what the town and community was like when they were part of the downtown business community. What a great addition to our oral histories collection.
