Oral History:

The Florin Oral History Project was initiated to preserve the unique history of Florin which was once a thriving farming community with a large Japanese population. Over 70 volumes have been completed representing a cross-section of the Florin and Sacramento communities, including those in various occupations, war veterans, draft resisters, minors in the prisoner of war exchanges, etc.  For more information, click here
