Museum “Wells Fargo” (San Francisco, USA) – expositions, opening hours, address, phone numbers, official website.
Wells Fargo, one of the leading banks in the United States, traces its history back to 1852, when two successful salesmen Henry Wells and William Fargo decided to found a savings bank where the lucky gold miners of the Gold Rush era could keep their money. Wells Fargo’s history is actually the history of San Francisco and all of California, with its ups and downs.
Much of the Wells Fargo Museum’s exhibit is dedicated to the glorious years of the Gold Rush. Among the most interesting exhibits are samples of nuggets from various deposits, tools for gold mining, clothes, shoes and household items of gold miners. A large part is reserved for old photographs, archival documents and audio evidence. The history of Wells Fargo Bank is represented by models of bank safes of the 19th and 20th centuries, working equipment and samples of bank papers.
Here you can also see the original Wells Fargo stagecoach and, getting inside the “moving” model, feel like a traveler of the Gold Rush era, as well as learn the history of the famous robber Black Bart.
