Last Updated: 9/17/2012

Through news articles, photography and objects from the museum’s collection, learn about the foundation of the Maidu Museum and the important role Myron Zents played in preserving this historic site. 

Exhibition May 19-September 8.

Myron's love for the Maidu historic site, as well as Maidu Indian artifacts, began when he was a child growing up in Roseville. From this love came a determination to preserve it for future generations. Myron continuously worked with the City, personally oversaw maintenance of this historic site and began conducting tours through the scenic Maidu village. He shared his excitement by recruiting others and training them to lead tours. Today over 20,000 school children visit the site annually.

Join us for a look back at Myron's accomplishments.
