Local History Lecture Series: “Rebuilding the Past”

Dec 06, 2016

Placentia, CA – Ever wonder what Placentia was like before you lived here?  Have you seen the ghosts that haunt Tri-City Park?  Maybe you’re curious why the Crossroads Shopping Center is part of Fullerton and not Placentia?  The Placentia Library District and the Placentia Historical Committee are pleased to continue our lecture series on the history of our great city - Placentia.   Come and explore Placentia’s rich, diverse and sometimes wacky history through these fun and interactive local history talks.  The programs are open to all ages, attend one or all sessions. No registration required.

Monday, February 6, 6:00-7:00 p.m.

Explore the history of Placentia through the story of our local buildings.  See how property owners have rebuilt the past with as little as a black and white photo for reference.  Discover the pitfalls and unexpected issues as well as the joy and satisfaction that come from restoring a building to its former glory.  So if you are dreaming of owning a historic property or are just curious about some of our most beautiful buildings join us as we dig into the past.

Join us on the following Mondays to celebrate Local History Day at the Placentia Library! 

February 6th: Rebuilding the Past: Local Historic Renovations
May 1: Placentia an All America City
August 7: Placentia Water Tower: A History
