Wednesday, September 11, 2019: “Class is in Session: School Days of Early San Diego,” by GQHF Historian Sandee Wilhoit and Visitor Services Coordinator Jamie Laird.
Fall is in the air and that traditionally means that many students and teachers have already begun a new and fruitful academic year. Over 150 years ago the students of San Diego were doing the very same thing when San Diego’s first schoolhouse opened in 1865. Join us on Wednesday, September 11th at 7 PM for a lesson on “School days of Early San Diego.” These days were not without controversy of course! Learn about the “Walker Incident” which pitted San Diego’s first schoolteacher against the school board, or the different varieties of schools which eventually cropped up such as “Madam Katherine Tingley’s School of Antiquity” for the more esoterically minded student. Were the early days of school in San Diego much different from now? Find out at our lecture. Class is in Session! History Talks! is a monthly lecture series presented by the Gaslamp Museum at the Davis-Horton House.
