About the Project

Gateway to Merced is a collaborative research project between UC Merced and residents of Merced County. We are meeting with individuals and families who live in and around Merced to gather their oral histories, their autobiographies, and their experiences of life in and around Merced. We seek to develop a better understanding of what drew people to this area and their contributions in making Merced what it is today.
