The Piedmont Historical Society’s 2018 Annual Meeting on November 18 will present Oakland History Room Librarian Kathleen DiGiovanni who will give a talk and slide presentation on Moraga Canyon.  Many of us drive this road without knowing its long history.  In the 1870s, the road through Hays Canyon was one of the main thoroughfares to Piedmont and the Oakland hills.  Kathleen will tell us about Colonel Jack Hays, for whom the canyon was named, and other early residents.

The program starts at 4pm at the Piedmont Community Hall, 711 Highland Avenue.  Refreshments will follow.

Our Annual Meeting is held each November and is open to members of the Piedmont Historical Society and features speakers on local history.
