About the Event
You have likely heard of and even hiked the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail, now is your opportunity to learn the story behind it. This presentation will overview the namesake's life, uncover Anza’s origins and highlight the trials and tribulations of his career in Northern New Spain. Find out what it was like for the approximately 300 people and 2,000 head of livestock who trekked over a thousand miles across one of the aridest and most dangerous parts of North America to establish one of the most important cities in the United States. This public history presentation by Alex La Pierre, founder of Borderlandia, will equip you with an understanding of this important part of Arizona’s heritage whether you are a resident or visitor of the Sonoran Desert.
Snacks will be served. $15 per lecture. Inside the 1885 Old Schoolhouse. A portion of the proceeds supports our education and preservation programs. Please email, or call, for reservations <firstname.lastname@example.org> 520-398-2252.
