1906 Earthquake Living History Day

Sunday, April 28, 2019, 5:00 PM - 10:00 PM

This interpretive Living History event is designed to re-enact some little known events connected to what is known as California's "Big One" - the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake and Fire. Visitors will be surrounded by docents in period attire as they re-create the memorable scenes of the recovery efforts. Some key moments in time include local dignitaries as they assisted refugees - many of whom camped out on the Capitol grounds or at Sutter's Fort - and Sacramento women as they aided Bay Area families in need by providing meal tickets, clothing and blankets. And, guests will be close-at-hand when then-California Governor George Pardee receives an important telegram - not a text, email or phone call - from President Theodore Roosevelt offering a staggering sum of $1 million for disaster relief.
