July 17, 2009

In recent years, the town of Los Gatos has enjoyed a historic walking tour, “A Walk in and Out of the Past”. The date moves around a bit but I didn’t see it on any schedule and was wondering what happened to it as it’s truly a delightful way to reconnect with the town’s past.

As it turns out, Carol Gruetzner (who is in charge of the walk and created the concept) is recovering from some ankle surgery, so no walk is planned for this calendar year. However, the familiar cast of historical characters from the wild west days of Los Gatos are returning this Sunday, July 19th, 2009 – they will just be in one place this time rather than scattered around several blocks of the downtown. 

The Vine to Wine exhibit is equally historical and will include the favorites from the last few years, and it will be a free event (unlike the walk) located at the Los Gatos history museum (Forbes Mill). Stop by the history museum at Forbes Mill (75 Church Street, near Los Gatos high and tucked away off the main drag) on Sunday afternoon between 1 and 4 pm for the exhibit, and between 1:15 and 3 for the visit of historic characters.
