Contemporary Views of the First Transcontinental Railroad

Please join us at the Bernhard Museum Winery on November 8th at 1:00 pm for a free program: Contemporary Views of the First Transcontinental Railroad. Professor Richard Koenig has photographed all sections of the original line that first connected east and west in 1869. Overtime, sections of the line were rerouted, but Professor Koenig preserved these lost remnants with his camera. He will present his photographs by PowerPoint.


The Bernhard Museum is located at 291 Auburn Folsom Road. Please call 530-889-6500 for more information.
