About the event
Join local historian Kevin Knauss to hear of his latest investigation into our region's past. While tracing his path of discovery, Kevin will share his findings on the Chinese population and their critical role in Folsom's early 1860s economy. By viewing censuses, bills of sale, and other archived material, Kevin has added to our understanding an aspect of Folsom's history that has been neglected in our past.
Kevin Knauss, a local historian, has written three books about the early Folsom region. His source material comes local archives and public resources such the Folsom Museum archives, Center for Sacramento History, California State Library, and many others.
