Program and Activity Schedule

 Monday, January 22nd, 2018  6:00 p.m. at the Little Temecula History Center (Red Barn next to Kohls)

Gerry Nichols, will present Samuel "O.T." Hackett. Hackett, a colorful person full of tales of his travels, drove the mail stage from San Diego to Temecula three times a week from 1878 until he retired in 1886. During his first five years on the job, he spent the night in a hotel room at the Wolf Store, which is still standing as at Vail Headquarters. Gerry, a retired teacher and former docent for the State Parks of California, has a thoughtful regard for the past and brings stories to life with his wit and humor.
