October Monthly Program: Kennett-The Town Under Shasta Lake.
The Shasta Historical Society presents its October Monthly Program, Kennett-The Town Under Shasta Lake Documentary. Join us on Saturday October 15, 2022, at 1:30pm for an exclusive viewing of Myra Buteau’s newest documentary about Kennett, a 19th century copper mining ghost town in Northern California. Fist a Wintu Native American village, then known as Backbone in the Gold Rush era, and later called Kennett when the railroad arrived, this town is now submerged 400 feet underwater in Shasta Lake. In partnership with Riverfront Playhouse and sponsored by Enjoy Magazine, join us at Riverfront Playhouse (1950 California Street, Redding, CA 96001) for guest speakers, a screening of Kennett-The Town Under Shasta Lake and a Q&A with the producer Myra Buteau. Entry is free for Shasta Historical Society members and $5 for non-members
