Lauren had this to say about her class,” For this 2-day workshop at NCHS, I plan to introduce techniques of interviewing and allow participants to practice doing interviews in pairs.  I will show examples of ‘little books,’ as well as written reports.  Participants will have a chance to attend a second session if they want to create such a ‘little book,’ and NCHS will provide the tools for them to complete the books during the workshop.” 

Attendance is limited to 20 people, so register early!

Within easy walking and viewing distance of the Napa River, this area was home to Napa’s first “rich and famous” residents. Most of the buildings were constructed in the last quarter of the 19th century, roughly between 1872 and 1910. Some of the riverboat captains selected this area for their ease of access to the bustling embarcadero. As many as sixty ships per day plied these waters in its heyday. Steamboats, many of them paddle-boats, ferried passengers to and from the San Francisco Bay. 

Space limited to 25. For questions or to RSVP please contact info@napahistory.org or 707.224.1739.
