1966.Clothing.StylesThe year is 1966. Mini-skirts are all the rage, international protests to the Vietnam War are beginning and Batman, a TV-series starring Adam West, debuts. And in a small Los Angeles suburb, at the invitation of Norma Yocum who is the city’s first woman mayor, a group of 21 long-time residents and civic leaders meet for the first time with the purpose of forming an organization that would be known as the Alhambra Historical Society.

On Sunday, April 30, the Alhambra Historical Society will celebrate its 50th anniversary from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. at the museum, 1550 West Alhambra Road, Alhambra, CA 91803. The festivities will include tours of the museum, a performance of the song “Alhambra” by a musical group from Alhambra Unified School District and a representative from Alhambra Coin Center available to evaluate the value of gold jewelry. The event is free and all are welcome to attend.

“Throughout its history, the Alhambra Historical Society has been dedicated to the acquisition and preservation of documents, artifacts and historical records of the city of Alhambra and its residents,” stated Rose Marie Markus, President of the Alhambra Historical Society. “The Society commemorates historical events and honors persons who have played a role in Alhambra’s history,” continued Markus.

Please plan on joining us in honoring Alhambra Historical Society’s 50th anniversary. Alhambra Preservation Group will have an informational table at the event and we’d love for you to come by and say hello.
