Preserving metalcasting history.
As far as I know, this is the only museum of its kind in the country. We believe that the history of our industry serves a vital purpose in reminding everyone that the technology that built California (and America) is very much alive and has grown and modernized to serve our state (and nation) into the 21st century and beyond. The California Foundry History Institute (CFHI), which built and operates this museum, has a satellite museum in Lodi, Calif., and currently is planning a new and even larger museum for Southern California for 2006. More information can be seen on the CFHI web site at www.foundryhistory.com.
We at CFHI join AFS to celebrate with pride the heritage of a vibrant and competitive industry that is poised to build the California of the future.
