Social Life at the Turn of the Century

Record #:
The 20th-century brought new ways to the state's citizens. Many enjoyed the new \"soft\" drinks, like Pepsi, or drank mineral water for their health. Newly completed railroad lines opened the state to all classes of people. Vacations were no longer the province of the rich; trips to the mountains, beaches, or mineral springs were available to all. People also turned to new sports, like football and baseball, for leisure-time amusement.
