Poster for Community Education A Night on the Old Spanish Trail
Join journalist/historian Steve Brown for a journey down the Old Spanish Trail, from Santa Fe to Los Angeles, where we’ll learn about the Mexican city of LA in the early and mid-1800s, the trade on the trail (including the slave trade), and the historical American figures who played a part in its use – and abuse. We’ll meet up with the Native chief and legendary horse thief, Walkara, John Fremont, Kit Carson, and others, with a special focus on the Old Spanish Trail from Mountain Springs, Nevada, through the Mojave Desert. The documentary that Brown has written and produced for public broadcasting and the FNX (First Nations Experience) network, History and Change on the Old Spanish Trail: Mountain Springs to Salt Creek, will be screened as part of the presentation.

Rescheduled from April 17, 2024.
