San Diego History Center

July 21, 2016 at 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm

You think you know San Diego…but do you?

On July 21st, the San Diego History Center presents the fun, unusual and, at times, provocative how and why the San Diego region is what it is today. Its more than sun, sand and suds, but the successes (and missteps) of those who have made their mark on our region. From discovery of our area before Jamestown was discovered, to how we could have been called “San Miguel”, to the first passenger air service in the United States, the quirky start to the San Diego Zoo and the changing face of the U.S. Mexico Border–the collections of the San Diego History Center will illustrate how these firsts came to be. The audience will get the opportunity to see up close and personal some of the objects that are part of the History Center’s collections.

Guest speakers Bill Lawrence, Executive Director, Matt Schiff, Marketing Director and Sarah Matteson, Education Coordinator
