Carbon Canyon History Presentation on Monday the 5th

There will be a presentation on the history of Carbon Canyon given this coming Monday the 5th at 6 p.m. at the Placentia Library.

The PowerPoint-illustrated talk will discuss parts of the canyon's history like the Olinda Ranch and oil field; other ranches like the Gaines family's Flying Cow Ranch where Olinda Village is; La Vida Mineral Springs; early communities like Sleepy Hollow; the Camp Kinder Ring facility which morphed into the short-lived Ski Villa resort; and many others.

This well-received talk has been given to the Orange County Historical Society, Chino Hills Historical Society (where 250 people were in attendance) and at Carbon Canyon Regional Park, so, if you're free for about an hour Monday evening, come down to hear some of the history of the Canyon.

The Placentia Public Library is at 411 E. Chapman Avenue at the northeast corner of the intersection with Kraemer Boulevard.
