Robles del Rio Subdivision Exhibit – Grand Showing
Robles Del Rio Lodge – Exhibit Team with Family
ROBLES del RIO EXHIBIT A GREAT SUCCESS!
Over 100 people showed up for the grand opening of the Robles del Rio Subdivision grand opening event. They marveled at the large photographic quality posters that tell the Robles del Rio Subdivision story from its beginning in the late 1920s to present. Several artifacts complemented the exhibit; such as an original chair, plate, and menu from The Ridge Restaurant, a fireplace grate and even a main entry door key from the Lodge, a document embosser from the Robles del Rio Carmelo Water Co., a 1916 cash register, and other artifacts from the period.
In what is beginning to be a recurring theme at the History Center, old friends reacquainted with each other and new friends were made in a friendly and happy setting. Many old stories flew around the gallery and the din from the crowd never ceased for 2 hours!
The Robles exhibit will be available for viewing through the end of the year and keepsake booklets of its history are available for purchase at the History Center.
