Muckenthaler event and a new history class

The Muckenthaler Cultural Center in Fullerton (shown above, when it was still a home) will debut a new historical exhibit on Oct. 6th, 6:30pm to 8:30pm. The exhibit relates to the Muckenthaler family and aspects of the history of  North Orange County. They also recently published a book about the founding families of their institution, "who played an instrumental role in the founding of many of our cities, Anaheim, Yorba Linda, and Placentia included." For more information, see their website.

Diane Ryan, who has taught classes in Orange County history for years, is now introducing a new class entitled "Historic Southern California Landmarks & Early Pioneers." She writes, "Come learn about some of the historic landmarks in Southern California, and the early pioneers who helped to shape this part of the state. A few of the pioneers we will become familiar with include Henry Huntington, James Irvine, and Richard O'Neill."
The class will run on Thursdays, from Oct. 20th to Nov. 17th, 9:30-11:30am, at the Oasis Senior Center in Corona del Mar. The total cost is $45 (plus a $2 materials fee to Diane on the first day of class). To sign up, or for more information, contact Diane via email.
