 This online museum tells the story of the fruit canning industry in Northern California.  The canners' story also tells us about the history of the region and stories about the many people who lived there.  This project began a decade ago with research in the archives at the University of California - Davis.  Since then, so much material about the canneries has been digitized that new opportunities were available to tell the story of California canneries.  This website brings together the resources about California canneries from all over America to tell as much of the story as possible.
