As part of Petaluma’s History Week celebration, please join the Petalumans of Yesteryear in the third annual History Trails walk through the historic downtown! This is your chance to meet some of Petaluma’s most colorful, influential and fascinating characters, including Clara McNear, Issac Wickersham, Addie Atwater, William Howard Pepper, Lyman Byce (inventor of a practical incubator) and other important Petalumans, and may include surprise appearances! Along the way, historic points of interest will be pointed out, and each character will delight with their humorous, sad, and sometimes, downright bawdy stories.


The walk is moderate in length (1 – 1.5 hours), the pace leisurely. Remember walking shoes, hats, water and sunscreen to be comfortable. Light refreshments served outdoors at conclusion of walk in the Museum Garden Court. Walk limited to 20 people per group. 


Purchase tickets online at Brown Paper Tickets, Petaluma Museum, or call the Museum at 707-778-4398. The walk begins at the foot of the Balshaw bridge near the Water Street Bistro.
