On Wednesday, April 25, at 7 p.m., the Dana Point Historical Society will present a program to highlight our new museum exhibit featuring the early 20th century contributions of Anna G. Walters (pictured left, c. 1918) to the Dana Point area.  Anna was one of the earliest investors and real estate purveyors of Dana Point.  Most of you know her as the owner of the Blue Fountain Lunch building, which is now Coastal Kitchens restaurant. However, Anna had many business interests in the area and was also involved in a protracted lawsuit against a would-be suitor who stole money from her.

We will welcome several of her relatives, who are joining us for the evening to tell stories of her early days in Dana Point and recount family memories passed down through the years.  Read the President’s message on page 2 to get some of the background on this trailblazing woman.

We will meet in council chambers at Dana Point City Hall. A reception will be held in our museum immediately following the program.
