So you consider yourself a history buff. But do you know, or can you deduce, in what order the following historic events took place? 1. The construction of Fisherman’s Wharf 2. The birth of California and the writing of its constitution. 3. That time an Argentine pirate invaded Monterey (answer at the end). There are few places on the West Coast with as rich a documented history as Monterey, which is why this weekend comes packed with opportunities to immerse yourself in local lore. There are too many reenactments, tours and exhibits to list at once but the activity is centered at Monterey Historic State Park and the surrounding adobes. Some of the highlights include Saturday’s open hours at the Ed Ricketts Lab on Cannery Row, a guided archives crawl (also on Saturday), and a History and Hops evening with local historian Tim Thomas. Be sure to check online for the full schedule: some activities require a reservation. As for the answers, here’s the year of each event. 1. 1849 2. 1845. 3. 1818. [AS]
