Hanford Carnegie Museum


Kings County (Calif.)


A second group of photographs (beginning with the letters "kic") is from the Hanford Carnegie Museum. From 1906 to 1968, this building was the home of the Hanford Library; after the construction of a new library building and in an effort to save this beautiful landmark, a group of local citizens converted the old Carnegie Library building into a museum in 1974.
