Offered here are extensive collections of fine art, photographs and manuscripts, including Gold Rush era diaries and letters. The California Historical Society has the most complete history of printing and lithography in the West, as well as antique posters and maps. The collections are viewed by appointment only. For casual students of California history, there is a bookstore with titles on almost anything you would like to know about the state from its earliest days to the present. Featured too, are exhibits with fascinating odds and ends of daily life in California, including a horseless carriage (or so reads the license plate).
