Citrus Heights History and Art Day
Citrus Heights History and Art Day – There are many different occasions to celebrate over October, and the Citrus Heights Historical Society (CHHS) is excited to be organizing an afternoon full of art, history, and wine. Bring sketchbooks, easels, and any other art supplies you would like to utilize while you channel your creative side. This communal event is open to all ages, so bring your family and make a masterpiece that you can take home for room decor.
Citrus Heights History and Art Day arrives on Sunday, October 20. The event will be held locally at the Historic Rusch Home and Grounds, taking place from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. The Rusch Home will be open, complete with historic city photos on display. One of the purposes of this day is to promote and preserve the history of Citrus Heights. Therefore, there will be CHHS members available to answer any history-related questions and provide fun facts about Citrus Heights and the Rusch Home.
This is a family-friendly event, and kids can participate in creating a work of art by heading over to the kid’s creative corner. For adults ages 21 years and over, wine sipping will be offered for a price. Additionally, there will be a Paint and Sip class that adults can join for a fee. This class will be led by an instructor who will guide participants through the artistic process while providing all painters with some unique facts regarding the history of Citrus Heights.
The History Behind Citrus Heights
Citrus Heights is a fairly new city, as it was incorporated in 1997. While the city hasn’t been around for too long, it is still rich in history. Below are some resources that will allow you to dive further into the city’s history:
- Historic Plaques – There are historic plaques located at various communal sites in Citrus Heights, including the Rusch Home and the Sylvan Cemetery. These are charming chronicles that represent the rural lifestyle from the mid-1800’s to the early 1990’s.
- Historical Publications – Make a visit to the City Hall and you will have access to many historical publications that detail different points of history related to Citrus Heights.
- The 14 Mile House – The 14 Mile House has been officially designated as a California Point of Historical Interest. This building is the last of many old inns constructed to serve the freight wagons down Auburn Road. The building was built in 1849 and is arguably one of the oldest buildings in Sacramento County.
