Get a "virtual backstage tour" of the Orange County Archives,
learn about some recent additions to its collections, and see a new
selection of rare historic photos at the OCHS general meeting on Thursday,
March 13, 2014 at 7:30 p.m., 2400 N. Canal St. in Orange. (See map
for location to this event.) Our speaker is OCHS president Chris Jepsen,
whose day job finds him serving as Assistant Archivist at the O.C. Archives.
The Archives is a division of the Orange County Clerk-Recorder Department,
located in the Old County Courthouse, 211 W. Santa Ana Blvd. It is open
on weekdays (except holidays), 9:00 a.m. to noon, and 1:00 p.m. to 4:30
p.m. During these hours, Archives staff members are on hand to help
anyone and everyone find their way through more than 120 years of records
in order to solve various historical, genealogical, and legal mysteries.
Saturday, March 22, 2014 marks the date of OCHS's day trip to the fascinating Calico ghost town in San Bernardino County. Our group will be escorted by motorcoach and provided an onboard lecture by Phil Brigandi. Once arriving at our destination, Calico historian Serena Steiner will give us a walking tour of the town. After the tour, we will have free time to wander and explore the town, visit the Lane Museum, and maybe even see Boot Hill.
Lunch is on your own, so be sure to bring additional cash for your meal at the Calico House Restaurant, as well as some optional attractions you may want to check out:
