A KBO FUNdraiser: “History Walk into the Past” through Ashland’s Historic Core

These events are part of KBO’s 2021-2022 FUNdrasing Campaign — a series of events hosted by members of our Board of Directors. CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE
On our “Walk into the Past”, we’ll be joined (at least “joined in spirit”) by this group of Ashlanders from about 1910.

Although maybe not quite as exciting as having an actual “time machine,” KBO Board member Jeff LaLande (archaeologist and historian) will take you on a trip into Ashland’s past — from the Shasta Indians’ village where the Plaza is now and on through changes of recent decades. This history walk is meant to enrich your own experience of the town. (Plus, all of your $$s go to KBO!)

Choose to join one of the two “history walks”: July 25 and August 8. Both walks will follow the same route, and each of them will last about three hours.

The walk will be followed (i.e., the Covid situation at that time permitting) by outdoor enjoyment of your own choice of “cheerful beverage” and light meal at a downtown eatery — with Jeff picking up the tab.

  • When: Sunday, July 25, 11:30 AM and Sunday, August 8, 11:30 AM
  • Where: We will meet at a yet-to-be-designated location downtown. We’ll spend time at the Plaza, N. Main Street, the Granite St./Skidmore neighborhood, and along
  • Main St. out towards the Library.)
  • Max. number of people for each history walk: 14.
  • Cost per person:$75.
