Welcome to MCARLM!

The La Gloria School House

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.

Your donation will help us continue to inspire and engage current and future generations of agriculture and rural life history enthusiasts. Without the Agricultural and Rural Life Museum, our community would be bereft of the inspiration and sustenance provided by the historical context of our exhibitions. No matter the size of your budget, your gift will make a difference! Gifts of all sizes tremendously appreciated.

Thank you for your contribution!
