Austin worked with  Anaheim's frugal Germans and Scots to meet stringent cost specifications tied to this much desired project.    California Museums

Citizens didn't want to let it pass away so they created a committee and raised necessary funding to renovate the Anaheim Central Library building.  

Transformed into a museum which wass  opened in 1987, the historic building contains two galleries for special exhibits, a Children's Gallery and  Museum Store.  Donations are recommended. 

Special events for a fee can be arrangedd  in the Children's Gallery and Carnegie Rooms by calling 714-788-3301 

This picture shows a mission bell with the founding dates of the museum and the California missions..  

Bells such as this one mark the path Father Junipero Serra took through the state of California beginning in th late 1700's. In the name of the king of Spain, he oversaw the building of 21 missions, usually a day's walk from each other mostly along the California coast.  The nearest mission to Anaheim is in San Juan Capistrano. Below is an exhibit at the Anaheim Museum.
