Paris of the Pacific—via Zoom
It’s France, 1848. Many rumors are circulating about gold mines in California…and the colossal wealth waiting to be picked up from the ground! Join us for a Zoom meeting on February 2, starting at 11 am, when City Guide Bruce Bennett will tell us about the French origins of the ‘City by the Bay’. We will learn how our compatriots built the first French community in California and how, thanks to their entrepreneurial talents and resourcefulness, they managed to survive in San Francisco, a boomtown straight out of the mud of Yerba Buena Cove. It will be a virtual walking tour of old San Francisco!
