Summer History Walks return to Hayward
Submitted By Marcess Owings
Summer History Walks make their grand entrance beginning Saturday, June 22. Four walks are on the slate this season. The first walk celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Lincoln Highway, tracing the route of the first transcontinental automobile highway through downtown Hayward.
On July 27, explore the history behind Hayward's fabulous murals. On August 24, break out your letter "H" sweaters for the third walk of old Hayward Union High School and share stories in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the opening of the Foothill campus. On October 12, explore the historic Leander Linekin House, built 120 years ago by one of the original town trustees, a school board member, and owner of the largest hardware, plumbing and stove shop in the county.
All four walks begin at 10 a.m. and meet at the Hayward Area Historical Society, 22380 Foothill Boulevard. Bring water and sunscreen and wear comfortable walking shoes. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for students and seniors, and free for HAHS members. For more information, visit www.haywardareahistory.org or call (510) 581-0223.
