Hop to it: Easter Bunny meets Davis history tour

By
From page A5 | April 16, 2014 |

Saturday will be a busy day at the Hattie Weber Museum. The Easter Bunny will leave a jelly bean-filled egg for each young visitor to find during the day, and at 2 p.m., local historian Gerri Adler will lead a walking tour of historic downtown Davis.

The tour starts and ends at the museum and wends its way around town, with Adler pointing out historical buildings and sites and telling stories of Davisville and Davis, including her adventures growing up here in the 1950s.

A new feature of the tour will be the ceramic mural honoring the Peña family, which arrived with the Vacas in 1841 to take up residence on Mexican land grants bordered by Putah Creek. One branch of the Peñas moved to Davisville after operating ranches in the area for many years. One home here, an 1890 ranch cabin moved to town in 1902, was continuously occupied by Peñas until Narcissa Peña died. It was demolished in 2012.

The cost of the tour is a minimum donation of $10 to the museum’s fund for converting the 1937 Works Progress Administration building in Central Park, adjacent to the museum, into an annex and storage facility. For reservations, call Lasting Impressions at 530-756-2122.

The Hattie Weber Museum displays the history of Davisville and Davis will permanent and rotating displays. It is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays. Admission is free, but donations are accepted with gratitude.
