Huntington Beach, Don Nixon, Katella Ranch, etc.

Here's a small map of Orange County from about 1900. Nifty, no?
The grand re-opening of the historic Huntington Beach High School Auditorium and Bell Tower (1926, Allison & Allison) will be held Oct. 18, at noon. The program will also feature "a special performance of Titanic: The Musical" (Is that a very dark comedy, or just an opportunity for one?)
Vic at Photos of the Forgotten posted a nice postcard image of Presidential brother Don Nixon's restaurant, and then linked to a interesting article about Don's Orange County chain and the hornets nest it stirred up. See the article at Restaurant-ing Through History.
Artists Kevin Kidney and Jody Daily have restored some interesting architectural details from Anaheim's historic Rea House. (That's Rea as in Kate and Ella Rea. Kate. Ella. Katella. Get it?) Read about it on Kevin's blog.
