Recounting women's roles in early California
Women played an important role in early Californian history. In 1900, California celebrated its first 50 years of statehood. The San Francisco Chronicle interviewed several prominent pioneer women and published their oral histories in an article on Sept. 9, 1900.
Tanneries played important roles in early California
Leather products played an important role in 19th-century lifestyles. Horses needed harnesses and saddles, furniture was upholstered in leather, people wore riding gear, boots, shoes, gloves - everything required a steady supply of high-quality tanned leather.
Cherries played vital role in orchards
Cherries once were one of the important crops in the Vacaville and Suisun area. While apricots, peaches and pears were secure crops that could be dried and stored, cherries were - and still are - a highly speculative crop, as late spring rains easily can ruin a whole harvest.
California's pioneer women first recognized in 1900
This is the final installation in my series based on the recollections of pioneer women who arrived in California in the late 1840s. The San Francisco Chronicle gathered their histories and published them on Sept. 9, 1900, in commemoration of California's 50th anniversary.

Semple was beaten to the punch in naming rights
In 1900, the San Francisco Chronicle commemorated California's 50th anniversary by interviewing prominent pioneer women. Among them was Frances Anne Cooper. She came to the Bay area in 1846 from Howard County, Mo. Her interview appeared on Sept [...]
Exposition was to showcase county
As many of my readers have guessed by now, I am intrigued by the number of great community events, celebrating a specific moment in local history or just life in general and usually involving the whole county, that have taken place over the last 150 years of Solano County's existence. Headlines of the various local newspapers always spout tantalizing words such as "thousands of visitors," "pageants," "gigantic" and "spectacular," and recount the enormous efforts to create these elaborate festivals.
Early Fiesta a memorable celebration
Fiesta Day celebrations have a long tradition in Vacaville's history.
