Heritage Explored in Final Lecture

California State University Sacramento's year-long Gold Rush Sesquicentennial series will draw to a close this fall with a lecture on Sacramento's Gold Rush heritage.

"Begun By Gold: Sacramento and the Gold Rush Heritage after 150 Years," will be given by University history professor Kenneth Owens at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 20 in the University Ballroom.

Owens, an expert on California's history at CSUS, will talk about the long-term significance of the Gold Rush for Sacramento.

"The Gold Rush made Sacramento. This city is most representative of the towns that were created by the Gold Rush, and it is still influenced by that event today," Owens says.
