Come hear past president of the Butte County Historical Society, Dave Brown's
presentation of his recently published book, "The Oroville-Quincy Ridge Route:
Development, Eclipse and Renewal of a Transportation Artery." The book
documents the history and evolution of one of the early routes into northern California,
used originally by pioneers crossing the Sierras and as a means for miners
to access the rich gold bearing gravels of the Feather River canyons. Dave's
research follows the story of the road through the decades as its commerical
use declined and gave way to nelect, and illustrates its revival in recent years
as recreational potential of the region has been realized and developed. The
program will be held at the Ehmann Home, 1480 Lincoln Street, in Oroville,
at 2:00 p.m., Sunday, October 21st. Refreshments served.
All are welcome, Addmission free. 533-9418, firstname.lastname@example.org.
