Stuart Swiedler will be speaking for LHS again!
Board a plane or ride the rails to experience the industrial transformation of the north coast of Contra Costa County.
We’ll witness the scheme to produce warships, the struggle of a community to fend off the import of bombs and other nuclear weapons, learn the new names of old towns, and the old names of new towns. Stu will show us how steel drove the economy during the era of bridge building and war.
Please join us when Stuart Swiedler, creator of EastBayHillsProject.org, shares with us his research of our area during the 20th Century. Stu is also a well regarded speaker on local history.
This will be the Historical Society’s Annual Meeting – Dessert and Beverages will be served.
