Learn about early Bakersfield, from the time of Father Garces. We will emphasize downtown and East Bakersfield, including many buildings that could be eligible for inclusion in the local Historic Perservation Register. You will learn about the effect that natural disasters (earthquakes, floods) have had on our historic buildings, the design motifs that distinguish various architectural styles, and how to identify those styles. The final session will be a guided walking tour of historic Bakersfield buildings by the instructor.
