   The Historic Wintersburg property contains Huntington Beach's last pioneer heritage barn.  The remaining barns of Orange County are a fading connection to our pioneer roots.

   Meet author of Historic Wintersburg in Huntington Beach (History Press), Mary Urashima, for coffee and a book discussion in the historic Carriage Barn at the Heritage Museum of Orange County this Saturday, May 2.  The event starts with coffee at 9 a.m., with the presentation at 10 a.m., followed by a book signing.

   The Heritage Museum of Orange County is located at 3101 W Harvard Street, Santa Ana, California, just west of South Fairview Street, with easy, free parking next to the Museum.  

   Stroll the historic plaza featuring buildings from the 1890s, floral gardens and citrus groves that recreate the old Orange County landscape on the Museum's 12-acre property.  Heritage Museum also has a new urban garden, the Gospel Swamp Farm, where they grow organic food for market.

   Learn more about Orange County's Japanese pioneers, see images not included in the book, and get an update on the preservation effort as Mary Urashima joins the Heritage Museum's Speaker Series 2015.  Books will be available for purchase.  For more information call the Museum at (714) 540-0404, or visit their website at
