2018 walk update #2

Attention Walkers of Jeff Tobes Memorial 20 mile History Walk
Date – April 28th, 2018
Start location --- Doyle Park, Hoen Ave entrance where the ballpark is
Registration time --- 6:00 am
Please go on line to register at sonomacountyhistory.org
You may pay and register on line. Or you may register online and mail in a check

When you enroll online you can pay by credit card or PayPal. You can also pay with a check as well, by enrolling online and mail me a check in with a short note and I will do the rest. The walk route is posted online at sonomahistory.org and I know that there will be sections and places that you have never been. There will lots of photos of the historical spots showing what it looked like years ago, so everyone should be able to help by holding the photos like last year’s walk. Santa Rosa has some very good and important history. There will be short talks on Luther Burbank, downtown history, 1906 earthquake, Maria Carrillo adobe, Santa Rosa Junior College, and the 1969 earthquake.

The walk will be almost all flat, there is a couple of hills in the rural cemetery, we will be walking through the Church of One Tree and the DeTurk Round Barn and a beautiful section along Santa Rosa Creek. We will also see where Robert Ripley was born and where he is buried, and we will see where a sheriff was killed and where the perpetrators where lynched. There will be all kinds of wonderful architecture to see as well as incredible landscapes.

We will meet at the Doyle Park ballfield 6:00am and. Breakfast will be at Luther Burbank Home and Gardens after we walk through the Burbank Gardens Historic District and parts of downtown. Lunch at Santa Rosa Junior College, and dinner back at Doyle Park The weather should be very pleasant, so be sure to bring a hat and sunscreen. The support vehicle will carry everything for you, so you don’t have to, but you should be prepared to carry water. The support vehicle will be available periodically, at short intervals including the port-a-pottys. Training for this event is necessary, you should be walking regularly with some longer walks. Don’t push it all to the last week, your feet won’t take it. In fact it would be good to not walk much a couple of days before the walk. If anyone wants to lead any practice walks, let me know and I will post them.

You need to carry these two phone numbers with you during the walk for emergencies. If you need help or anything and if you need to exit the walk please let us know. Ray 707-535-6476 and Sean 707-528-7326. Since this walk is all in the city we will not be keeping track of everyone and if someone needs to leave early or join us late that will be okay. We still need a tee shirt sponsor; the cost is $750 and their logo will be prominently displayed on the back. If you know anyone would be interested in being the tee shirt sponsor refer them to Cecilia at 707-953-0186. Business card sponsors are also welcome and shall be shown on the map and website, you can do that through the registration process.

We need a volunteer to pick up breakfast and coffee in the morning.

The 2018 walk will be the last that Cecilia and I are organizing so if anyone wishes to continue the walks this would be a time to step forward to see what is involved.

Heritage Network Meeting Minutes – Oct 12, 2013

Minutes of the Heritage Network Meeting 10/12/13 at the Carrillo Adobe Jo Markwyn (acting secretary for this meeting) Dan Murley spoke briefly about the significance of the Carrillo Adobe. He also appealed for someone to agree to be secretary for the Heritage Network to replace Evelyn McClure who is moving away. Larry Carrillo of the Friends of the Carrillo Adobe provided information on the current status of the Carrillo Adobe, the site of which is currently the property of Barry Swenson who proposes to build on part of the land and who has agreed to a park around the Adobe. However, plans have been stymied for years by the financial problems and exactly what will happen is unclear. He also pointed out that the remaining part of the Adobe is the house. The foundations of the larger north wing which was pictured in the HABS photos from the 1930's can still be seen when the vegetation is cleared. In addition recent archaeological investigations have discovered foundations to the south of the Adobe, between it and Montgomery Dr. These may not have been built upon. Larry also commended Dave Franzman's SRHS History Club for their work in cleaning the underbrush from the area so that today's meeting could be held. After the meeting Larry conducted a very informative tour of the Adobe. Read more
