One of the earliest settlements in the region will be the subject of discussion by descendants of early pioneer families of the Buckeye Township in southwestern Yolo County at a Winters History Project event at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 11.
John Martin and Rafael Galiano, owners of Park Winters, 27850 County Road 26, will host the program in their Victorian hotel. The program will include historical displays and talks about three pioneer families. Refreshments will be served.
George Griffin, a member of one of the pioneer families, will kick off the meeting. Local historian Joann Larkey will show early maps locating the commercial center of Buckeye, which preceded the founding of Winters by 20 years.
William A. Chapman of Antioch will talk about the inter-related families of George Washington Scott and Amaratta Bloomer Scott — whose early Victorian home has become Park Winters — and George Walker Chapman and Zilphia Stephens Chapman.
Victoria Fredericks and other family members will present photographs and recollections of the Henry J. Fredericks and Carolyn Hoffman Fredericks families.
