EMERYVILLE: THE BIG HISTORY OF A SMALL CITY

Join East Bay Yesterday host Liam O’Donoghue and Rob Arias of The E’ville Eye Community News & The Emeryville Historical Society for an eclectic overview of Emeryville, the town notoriously dubbed “the rottenest city on the Pacific Coast” by future Supreme Court chief justice Earl Warren. This free event will take place in the Food Hall at Public Market Emeryville.

In addition to discussing the origins of Emeryville’s “immoral” reputation, this talk will cover everything from Ohlone shellmounds to baseball legends. If you want to learn more about the history of local industries, “million dollar mudflats” and more, don’t miss this presentation, which will include vintage photographs, maps and a Q&A session.

Monday, June 17th at 7pm. Admission free. More info here: https://www.facebook.com/events/390799051535212
