• Sept. 20: As part of an ongoing focus to provide high-energy, interactive and educational activities, Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park presents a special Hands on History: Harvest – the Real Gold in California event. When John Sutter first arrived in California in 1839, his dream was to build an agricultural empire. While it took many years for California’s agricultural industry to recover from the impacts of the Gold Rush, it is now one of the primary breadbaskets of the world. Fort guests are invited to step back in time during this Hands on History event that celebrates harvest time at the fort. Visitors will learn about the unique process by which wheat was threshed and winnowed at the fort, turn the stones on the grist mill, make rope, sling a lariat and learn to use a lasso. Guests can also make an eye-opening trip to the doctor to learn how a cut arm, bruised head or swollen check was treated. There will also be hands-on activities for young and old and history hunts to complete and earn a free coloring book. In addition, there will be a display of guns and weapons from the Gold Rush era and demonstrations of black powder weaponry in action. Sutter’s Fort is open daily and more information is available at (916) 445-4422 or suttersfort.org.
