LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — The Lake County Historical Society and Ely Stage Stop Museum will present “Anderson Marsh: The Back Story” on Saturday, April 9.

The event, for Historical Society members only, will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Ely Stage Stop Museum at 9921 Soda Bay Road, just north of Kit's Corner off Highway 29 between Lower Lake and Kelseyville.

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 six 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 divine 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.

To join the Historical Society ahead of the program, go to http://elystagestop.com/support/ and download, fill out and return the membership form and dues to the address on the form. Or come to the event and join at the door.
