Join us for a showing of Newcastle – Gem of the Foothills followed by a Q&A session with members of the Loomis Basin Historical Society.
Newcastle – Gem of the Foothills explores one of California’s most compelling Gold Rush towns. Founded as an important stop on the original transcontinental railroad, Newcastle became a center of the nation’s fruit industry. The program recalls the Native Americans, gold miners, Chinese shop keepers, and Japanese farmers who played important roles in Newcastle’s history.
