Costanoan artifacts at Woodside museum Costanoan artifacts at Woodside museum (June 02, 2004)

A display of artifacts from the Native Americans who first peopled the Woodside area make up the inaugural exhibit in the new Woodside Community Museum. An opening party is set for 4 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, June 6. The museum is located in the century-old Mathisen farmhouse at Town Center, at Woodside and Whiskey Hill roads.

The restored farmhouse was dedicated in October, following a four-year campaign by Woodside History Committee members to restore it to its former modest glory.

Woodside resident Irene Zwierlein, who frequently serves as an official Native American representative when excavation work turns up objects from Costanoan settlements, is the curator of the exhibit, which includes many objects found in Woodside.

The last stage of fundraising for the Woodside Community Museum is still in progress. For information, call Rob Flint at 851-1532. For information about the museum, call the Woodside History Committee at 851-1294 or Woodside Town Hall at 851-6790.
