California History

Hey There! If you’ve been following my blog for a while then you may know that 1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE California and everything this beautiful state has to offer! 2. I’m a HUGE history buff! Every vacation I go on, the first question I type into google is ‘history of (insert name of destination)….’ Something about knowing what was then and seeing it now is truly an amazing experience. I think it really humbles me and reminds me to let things go and not focus so much on the little things. Reminding myself of the history of an area reminds me that there is a greater story than my own…

Known as the “Golden State”, sometimes mistaken for our beautiful weather and sunny rays but the name really came from the discovery of gold in California in 1848 leading to a major migration of people on the hunt for gold. Nicknaming the perfect State of California as “The Golden State”.

I’ll be adding various blog posts on this page as it relates to California History. I may even double up and share some fun content and expand on this page on the history topics for all my history buffs. Let me know what cities or towns you are interested in me expanding on! Also, feel free to share with me too! I love learning from all of you!
