Carlsbad Connections: Place and Spirit

The Place we now know as Carlsbad was a barren and isolated place in the 19th and early 20th century when its first settlers arrived here, but their lives and those of their descendants have become the foundation of our community. Many of today’s landmarks are the result of their enterprise and the overlapping family connections that they forged during those early years. This exhibit introduces some of these families and identifies the places that mark their times and endeavors.
