The History and Story of Lake Merritt

Thursday, October 20, 2022

Noted Oakland historian and award-winning author Dennis Evanosky will tell the interesting story of Lake Merritt.  

Lake Merritt is a major landmark in the city of Oakland. Surrounded by a Cathedral, a children's fairyland, housing and not to mention runners, bikers and picnickers, it is a busy and vibrant place.  What do we really know about the lake? Is it manmade?  If so who did it and why? Why is it called Lake Merritt? Has it always played such a central role in the city of Oakland?  These and many other interesting and entertaining stories will be told.
