From the Vault


Back in 2010 and 2011, the board of the Museum created a series of videos about important people and places in 20th century Orange County history.

Each month, we will unlock a new video and upload it to our YouTube channel for you to watch.

This month's feature video:

Glenn and Henrietta Auman

A moving tribute to beloved teachers Glenn and Henrietta Auman, the longest serving teachers in the history of the Orange County school system.  Mr. Auman taught math and coached football, baseball, and girls basketball.  Mrs. Auman taught home economics.  They both taught life lessons and were inspirational to many students.
