The Moulton Museum is committed to supporting local agencies with its local history. We are collaborating with the OC Parks staff to develop exhibits for the Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park Visitor Center. This 2,500 square-foot visitor center has “interpretive displays and a welcome station with information and maps to educate the public on the park’s diverse history, natural resources, and recreational amenities. “Currently, the park has signage that reminds hikers the heritage of this site. Take a look at this Relics from the Farm: The Moulton Ranch raise more that cattle sign that is placed in front of a harvester. These large agricultural equipment were used to gather crops on land that was subleased to farmers. They often shared large pieces of machinery like this and worked as a collective. The sign image shows a 20th century tractor.
