Imagine what it would be like to visit Avalon over 100 years ago, when the Banning family owned the island and swift stage coaches were a common sight. Or imagine being in Avalon in the 1930s, enjoying swing bands in the new Casino and bumping into Hollywood celebrities.

Special thanks to the Banning Residence Museum and the Catalina Island Museum for their expertise and loans of artifacts.

The exhibit was on view through Spring, 2008.
