During a time of westward expansion and California’s admission into the American Union, Colonel Robert Symington Baker and Senator John Percival Jones arrived in what became Santa Monica. On July 15, 1875 these two men held a land auction that gave rise to our great city.

Guest speaker and Santa Monica Conservancy docent Michael Burton will give a lively presentation on early Santa Monica history, including native settlements, the City's founding and first lot sales, and perspectives on 19th century history. 

This history lecture is part of the "Discover the History" series hosted by the Santa Monica History Museum. The event is free and all ages are welcome. Seating is limited and on a first arrival basis.
