1932 Living History Tour - Beekman House
This Saturday you can go back to 1932 and experience what it was like living in Jacksonville during the depression.  Historic Jacksonville, Inc. brings the 1873 Cornelius C. Beekman House Museum to life with 1932 Living History Tours at 11 am, 1 pm and 3 pm. The country is deep into the Great Depression.  Franklin Roosevelt is running for President.  Groucho Marx is on the radio.  In Jacksonville, locals are digging up backyards and streets looking for any gold left from the town’s original gold rush.  Hobos go house to house looking for hand outs.  Julia Beekman has passed away, and daughter Carrie is moving to Portland where her brother Ben has lived for the past 40 years. Historical interpreters portray Carrie and Ben as they close up the family home, going through years of accumulated belongings.  Relatives and friends join them for reminiscences about life in the late 1800s and observations and comments on current events and a depression era town and nation.  And the public is invited to be part of the story! The Beekman House is located at 470 E. California Street in Jacksonville. Tour admission is $10 for adults; $8 for seniors and students.  Tours are not....
