Monday, January 25th, 6:00 p.m.

     Watch a Zoom presentation of “The Shooting and Death of Asa C. Davis.”

     Richard Fox will kick off the Temecula Valley Historical Society’s presentations for 2021 with an intriguing Who-Dun-It that happened in Temecula. Long before there were telephones in the Valley, the telegraph operator played an important role in the community. Unless someone was traveling to carry news, the only fast way to send a message was by telegraph which was located in the Temecula Train Station on Pujol Street.

     Fox will tell the story of an exchange of harsh words, a shot fired, the diligent transmission of a message, and the aftermath of the shooting that happened long ago in Temecula.

     To find out how the story ends, join our Zoom presentation on January 25. Click on the link just below to view it.

     Fox, who is a founding member of the Temecula Valley Historical Society, retired from a career in the printing industry. He is a past president of the society and is editor of the society’s monthly newsletter.
