Like every other community, Napa County has suffered its share of the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. Throughout the years we’ve been roasted by fires, frozen by snowstorms, deluged by floods, and shaken by earthquakes. Yet, with our resourcefulness, ingenuity, and dedicated hard work, we always pull through. After each disaster we have emerged from the rubble, dusted ourselves off, and became better, stronger, and more prepared for the next round.
This winter, weather gets wild with snowstorms, fires, floods, and earthquakes in The History Center’s newest exhibit, “Weird Weather & Natural Disasters,” opening October 16 at 5:30 pm at the Goodman Library located at 1219 First Street in downtown Napa. See our county battle the elements, and learn about how we romped, played, struggled, and fought against the forces of Mother Nature.
For information, please go to www.napahistory.org or by phone to 224.1739. RSVP requested but not required. Plan to visit this informative and interesting exhibit on display through January 2014 at the Napa County Historical Society. Our mission is to discover and keep history alive through exhibits, lectures, and events, as well as research, publications, and educational activities. We are a membership-based archival and educational organization dedicated to the discovery, preservation and presentation of the people and history of Napa County and its place in California history.
