Welcome to MCARLM!
Agriculture is a big story in the Salinas Valley. It is the story of settlement, transportation, trade, the environment - and you are part of this story. MCARLM’s mission is to collect, preserve and share the stories and artifacts that reflect this long-time legacy. Our hands-on programs – from our popular elementary school fieldtrips to our new living-lab garden – place visitors at the center of the story as history unfolds teaching them about the important part they, their family and friends play today. Come visit MCARLM and find your place in history.
