History Day in Redwood City: Lathrop House, Lecture at Museum

Start with a tour of one of the Peninsula's oldest mansions.


From there we'll walk the short distance toward the downtown square for a  1:00 lecture at San Mateo County History Museum, housed in the old courthouse where some scenes from "Mrs. Doubtfire" were made. 

Steve Okamoto will speak on "Relocation: A Constitutional Mistake of Historic Proportions"

 Museum admission  is $5 for adults, $3 for seniors.  Lathrop House's website does not mention an admission fee, but a small donation would certainly be appropriate.

If you haven't been to the museum in the old courthouse before, you might want to plan your day to go there early or remain after the lecture.  It's well worth it.

After the lecture, we'll go to Ike's Lair, 2655 Broadway Street.  With meat, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free menu items, we should all be able to find something we'll like.

We might head over to the other side of town to the harbor for a good brisk walk before going home.
