KING CITY — The public is invited to listen via Zoom on Tuesday, March 2, at 1:30 p.m. to a 30- to 45-minute conversation that will describe the process that John and Karen Jernigan and Howard P. Strohn are going through to write a book about the history of King City.

The book is being prepared for Arcadia Publishing for their Images of America series. The team plans to spend 2021 gathering old photographs and organizing information to tell the story of the founding of the town, starting in 1886 when the railroad arrived here.

The free event is being sponsored by the San Antonio Valley Historical Association (SAVHA) of which the Jernigans and Strohn are members. Thirty-four years ago, in 1986, members of SAVHA produced a history of King City for the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the town.

To request a Zoom link and passcode for the meeting, email [email protected] or call 831-385-6112.
