People and images of Castro Valley, Hayward and San Lorenzo

Submitted By Pam Jenkins

The newest addition to Arcadia Publishing's Legendary Locals series is Legendary Locals of Castro Valley, Hayward, and San Leandro by Doris Marciel and the Hayward Area Historical Society. Over 200 images of places and people that helped define the present day character of this historic area. The City of Hayward and two unincorporated communities share common history but each has its own unique story.

Among the personalities that shaped the Hayward region is that of a failed gold miner and entrepreneur William Hayward who established a stagecoach stop and boardinghouse in 1851, English sailor Harry Rowell, who jumped ship in San Francisco Bay and later became known as the "King of the Rodeo," developer David Bohannon who helped transform San Lorenzo from a farming village into a suburban center and Lucille Lorge whose grandfather opened the first business in Castro Valley.

Legendary Locals of Castro Valley, Hayward and San Lorenzo showcases the rich heritage of active citizens - leaders in business, culture, medicine, military, politics, sports - that contributed their time and efforts to make the region viable. The official release date is July 8, 2013.

Legendary Locals of Castro Valley, Hayward and San Lorenzo, $21.99, Arcadia Publishing. Available at local retailers, online bookstores, or through Arcadia Publishing at or (888) 313-2665.
