The Evolution of a Local Transportation Route
Come hear past president of the Butte County Historical Society, Dave Brownʼs presentation of his recently published book, “The Oroville-Quincy Ridge Route: Development, Eclipse and Renewal of a Transportation Artery.” The book documents the history and evolution of one of the early routes into northern California, used originally by pioneers crossing the Sierras and as a means for miners to access the rich gold bearing gravels of the Feather River canyons.
Daveʼs research follows the story of the road through the decades as its commercial use declined and gave way to neglect, and illustrates its revival in recent years as recreational potential of the region has been realized and developed.
The program will be held at the Ehmann Home, 1480 Lincoln Street, in Oroville, at 2:00 p.m., Sunday, October 21st. Refreshments will be served, and all are welcome. Admission free. For more information, 533-9418 or email@example.com.
