A Gathering of Fort Bragg Women at the Turn of the Century- Do You Know Who They Are? Why They Were Together?

In collaboration with Mendocinoโ€™s Kelley House Museum, MendoFever will be publishing their Facebook posts. The Kelley House Museum works hard to document and curate Mendocino Countyโ€™s rich history and can be visited in the seaside town of Mendocino.

The Kelley House Museum could use your help in identifying this group of intriguing women. As the original paper matt frame indicates, the photograph was taken by the Fitch and King photography studio in Fort Bragg. We estimate the date between 1904 to 1914. Could this be your great grandmother and her friends? Why are they gathered together at the studio? How are they related? Please contact Karen McGrath at curator@kelleyhousemuseum.org with any clues you might have.

  1. The 1910 census has a lot of information other census years did not include. Start with the town of Fort Bragg and page by page write down the names of young woman. Check the newspapers for wedding announcements. In those days they would include the family and friends in attendance. Did the school publish announcements? Did Fort Bragg have a town directory? Hopefully familiar names will start to match up. If I had a ancestry,com account I would look it up.

  2. What I notice is how scrubbed, clean and neat in appearance are these women. This is way before the era of a modern washing machine, steam irons, showers, indoor plumbing. and dry cleaners. How is it those way back then could manage to look respectable with a โ€˜pride of selfโ€™? Look around at the current generation. How much pride of self does one see?
