Final Phase of Redwood City’s “Path of History” to be Unveiled
Redwood City, CA - July 26, 2012 - Redwood City’s history has always been a source of great pride for the community, particularly Downtown where there are many well-preserved examples of historic structures and points of interest. These historic icons are compiled and honored as the City’s Path of History program. In 2010, the City dedicated an historical information kiosk and unique commemorative sculpture, on the plaza near Wells Fargo Bank, at the corner of Broadway and Main Street.
Now, the City invites the community to join Councilmembers Ian Bain and Barbara Pierce along with other dignitaries and involved community members to honor Redwood City’s rich past with the ceremonial unveiling of the final element of the Path of History self-guided walk – the completed installation of all twelve historic plaques at various sites Downtown, with their locations listed in the beautiful Path of History brochure which is available free to the public
