Promoting Merced: A County of Many Resources
This year is the centennial of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition (PPIE) in San Francisco. Over 18 million visitors attended this international exhibition from February to December 1915. Like many counties in California, the PPIE was an opportunity to attract potential settlers to Merced County. Through the publication of an engaging illustrated booklet, Merced County was presented as a place of opportunity, wealth, prosperity, and contentment. This century-old booklet is the source for the “Promoting Merced” exhibit.
