Scarecrow Festival: Chicken, Anyone?



Today, we head up to the top of town, where the City of Sierra Madre meets the Mt. Wilson Trail.  Here, we find the venerable Richardson House & Lizzie's Trail Inn Museums, which I have talked about in the past.  But wait!  Today, there is something different going on.  There's someone on the porch of the Richardson House, and that person is none other than Lizzie herself.  She is there to greet us, with a smile, and a couple of chickens.  Looks like the price is good, but I'm afraid those chickens will have a rubbery taste...

If you'd like to hear more about Lizzie, and her chicken (which was said to be divine!), please stop by the museums any Saturday, between 10:00 and 12:00, where members of the Sierra Madre Historical Preservation Society (SMHPS) will fill you in.

On Thursday, October 18th, at 7:00 p.m., the SMHPS will be holding their fall meeting and lecture.  The speaker will be Joe Feeney, and the topic will be "California's Second Gold Rush: The Rise of the Citrus Industry."  Click here for more info.  It promises to be a very interesting evening!

    1. That house was here before the town was. Amazing, huh? Please forgive me for not visiting much lately. I'm in a crazy-busy time, and am my head is barely floating above water! :)

  3. Seeing this would perk up my day! Love how Sierra Madre has such a connection with its history, the Preservation Society seems to have its hands full (a good thing!)
