Although “modern” Aptos is not that old, it is rich in history. The Aptos History Museum is a tremendous resource to learn about our community’s history – check it out if you haven’t yet visited! Periodically throughout the year, the Museum will also hold presentations about specific aspects of our history.
This year, the Aptos History Museum’s first event of the season will be about Frederick Hihn’s little known railroads to his sawmills. This will include the Valencia Mill in Aptos as well as Gold Gulch, Laurel and King’s Creek. The speaker will be Derek Whaley, author of Santa Cruz Trains: Railroads of the Santa Cruz Mountains (with 11 five-star reviews on Amazon!).
In addition, Soup De Jour by Jimmie will be providing a soup tasting for attendees.
The presentation will be held on Saturday, November 4th, 3-4:30 pm, at the Rio Sands Hotel. The cost is $10 for museum members and $15 for non-members. These presentations are very popular, and to attend, you must make a reservation in advance. To reserve your seat, please call (831) 688-1467.
