Next year is the 40th anniversary of the acquisition of Anderson Marsh and Ranch as a new State Historic Park.
Dr. John Parker will give a talk about the 6 years of behind-the-scenes work it took to secure the funds to acquire the park; including nominating the area to the National Register of Historic Places, public awareness work, people getting fired, recall campaigns, fines, fraud, arrests, and Devine intervention.
Dr. Parker will also show the Emmy award winning documentary “A Walk Through Time” that presents the history of the Anderson Marsh State Historic Park and the people who used it.
