Historian Terry Ommen

Please Join Us for Our Annual Membership Meeting

Members and friends are invited to the Tulare County Historical Society’s Annual Membership Meeting to be held once again at the Exeter Courthouse Museum, 125 South B Street on Sunday, January 28, 2018, from 2:00-4:00 pm.

Following the business portion of the meeting and election of officers, this year’s program will be presented by local historian and author Terry Ommen. His powerpoint presentation will feature his book Wild Tulare County—Outlaws, Rogues & Rebels. In this entertaining program, you will learn about some of our area’s most notorious badmen—characters like Jim McCrory, a killer hanged by a Visalia mob; Frank Creeks, a murderer who met his fate on the gallows at Folsom Prison; James Wells, a civil war killer; E.L.N. King, a cutthroat and butcher; Evans and Sontag, Tulare County train robbers; and Josiah Lovern, saloon keeper and tough guy.

Refreshments will be served. Please plan to join us!
