The History of Point Richmond

How much do you know about the "Point"? CCCHS is proud to feature Bay Area native and history consultant Karen Buchanan

Virtual Event hosted by the Contra Costa County Historical Society

Saturday, January 23, 2021 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

(virtual doors open at 11:15 a.m.)

Join your friends in history for a special presentation about The History and People of Point Richmond.  Karen Buchanan, a Point Richmond resident and history consultant, will entertain us with the history and colorful characters of this quaint Richmond community. 

Also on the agenda is the Contra Costa County Historical Society Annual Review as well as special thanks to retiring Executive Director Dr. Priscilla Couden and retiring Director and past-president Scott Saftler. 

How much do you know about “The Point”? This little community is full of history and interesting characters. You'll learn about Professor Botts and his Flying Machine, C.L. Cofer and his Terrestrial Wave Detector, and how a failed duck-hunting trip turned into a business deal that literally put Point Richmond on the map! Q&A to immediately follow.

Admission to the event is free. Registration is required.

A suggested donation of $20 is requested to cover the costs of this event and replace the raffle ticket sales that we would normally garner at an in-person event.
