Historical Walk ~ Railroad Reservation

September 26 2014 at 05:30 PM
Meeting Location: Amtrak Station

Redding’s Railroad Reservation—When the California and Oregon Railroad decided to build their new line through the place called “Poverty Flat” it created financial problems for some people and considerable opportunities for others.  That decision was responsible for Redding’s establishment and the gradual death of the important, nearby town of Shasta.

This tour makes a loop through the area reserved for the railroad’s Redding operation.  We will discuss the railroad’s role in the region in the late 1800s and early 1900s, and events that occurred west of California Street.  Where did Redding’s only lynching occur??  Where were the last of the Modoc Indians loaded on railcars when shipped to Oklahoma??  Where was the first jail, the first fire station, the first store, Redding’s Chinatown and Redding’s Red light District??  We will visit all of those locations and share fascinating tales about them.

 

Historical Walk ~ Historical Homes

September 27 2014 at 01:00 PM
Meeting Location: Behrens-Eaton House Museum, 1521 West Street

If you know Redding you likely know of the beautiful historical homes just west of Downtown.  Many have been restored and have great stories behind their construction and owners.  Walk participants will also be given a special tour of the Behrens-Eaton historical home, led by that museum’s docents.
