What is Tri-City Treasures Forgotten?
This historical, artistic map highlights landmarks, geographic and transportation features, plants and animals that were once a part of the Tri-City landscape – Fremont, Newark and Union City, but have since vanished, passed into oblivion, or been buried by the forward march of time. Each icon on the map has a backstory that you can explore through text, audio and video. Simply click the map to visit a brand new website where you can discover more about each resource.
The map is a springboard for future discussions about the rich history of the Tri-City, which was and is an important part of the West, the United States & the World.
Tri-City Treasures Forgotten creates a new learning experience using the interactive map, information on local history, community engagement and historical resources.
This project is a collaboration between the Washington Township Museum of Local History and California Revealed, an initiative of the California State Library. All artwork has been done by local artist Jeff Schinkel. Visit a brand new website where you can discover more about each resource.
