History Talks! Celebrating Bum

Wednesday, May 16th at 7pm

Bring your pooch and join us in the historic pocket park to hear the tale of a most remarkable canine friend! The Gaslamp Museum at the Davis-Horton House is celebrating Bum, San Diego’s official town dog. Lecturer Dan Haslam, Walkabout International tour guide and GQHF Board Member, will tell the story of San Diego’s beloved Bum.  Arriving in “New Town” San Diego as a stowaway on a ship from San Francisco in the late 1880s, Bum soon became well-known among the town folk as the “dog that belonged to no one but was loved by everyone.”

This History Talks! lecture will take place outside in the Davis-Horton House park. Dogs are welcome to attend!

History Talks! is a monthly lecture series presented by the Gaslamp Museum at the Davis-Horton House. Each month a local historian or specialist delve into topics related to San Diego and the Davis-Horton House to bring a unique glimpse into the history of our city. Come hear history come alive!

May 16 , 2018 at 7pm.  Lectures are free for Members, $5 non-members. ###
