Take Me to the River - Oral History Room
For over a decade Trust Board Chairman, Coke Hallowell, and her daughter, Joell Hallowell, have been collecting oral histories of people who have lived along the San Joaquin River. This collection of stories of Fresno and Madera county residents is on permanent display at the River Center in video form, with accompanying photographic portraits and related artifacts. Take Me to the River runs continuously in the Story Room, which is furnished with bookshelves full of California stories, artifacts, cozy lighting and a small, inviting seating area where the videos are played.
From gold dust mining to grass basket making, summer swimming on hot days to salmon spearing by firelight, people who have lived at the river’s edge remember and recount it with respect and fondness. Their memories provide a colorful look back into the social, cultural and natural history of the San Joaquin River. From the beginning of time, people have gravitated to this area largely because of the river and the ways it supports, sustains and enriches human life.
A book based on this collection of oral histories is available for purchase in the River Store.
