Two one-week Landmarks workshops for eighty school teachers using the history of the Dominguez family and related sites to illuminate California's history from colonial days to the 1920s.

The goals of the Early American History Seen through the Eyes of an Early California Family, 1780s-1920s workshops engage the NEH Landmarks theme of Bridging Cultures by examining the history of the Dominguez family. We will use the artifacts and archival sources of the Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum and California State University, Dominguez Hills Special Collections to trace the Dominguez family history for over two centuries. Their history and lands are entwined in California’s rich Indian, Spanish, Mexican and American history.
