Original MGM Traffic Signal Finds new Home at ARC
One of the most exciting things about being Museum chair is seeing new and exciting artifacts from Culver City’s history. One item you won’t want to miss is an authentic MGM traffic signal, generously donated by former Culver City Mayor Richard R. Brundo and his wife Alida.

The Archives & Resource Center (ARC), which is normally open on the first and third Saturdays of each month, will be closed on Saturday, May 7, 2011, because the Car Show is taking place in downtown Culver City that day, as are several other events that members may wish to attend.
The ARC will be open on the third Saturday in May, the 21st, from 1-3.
