If you missed the Anaheim Historical Society's big Citrus Celebration at Founders Park this past weekend (as I was forced to), there's still a chance to partially redeem yourself. Tomorrow, Saturday, Oct. 1st, Anaheim's historic Founder's Park, at 400-418 N. West St., will hold an open house from 9am to noon. Costumed docents will be on hand to lead tours and share information on the historic homes. The event is free, although donations to help support school tours are always appreciated. It appears this open house thing will be a regular occurance on the first Saturday of each month. (That's the same schedule as the open houses at Santa Ana's Victorian Howe-Waffle House, so you could make a day of it!)
Did I mention the Anaheim Historical Society now has a blog? Well, they do. So go look at it already!
Those of you who have been involved in one way or another with the Old Orange County Courthouse during the past three decades probably know the curator of the Old Courthouse Museum, Marshall Duell. He has been there since the 1980s when the building reopened after a major retrofitting. Marshall has announced that he's retiring in October. If you plan to stop by to say farewell, you might want to call him first -- I understand he broke his arm and may be out for a couple days.
