7150 years ago. That’s how long ago there were people living in Pacific Grove. That’s better than 2000 years before there were pyramids in Egypt.

Oldest town on the Peninsula: Prehistoric Pacific Grove
by archeologists Gary Breschini and Trudy Haversat

Who knew that the little town we now call Pacific Grove had such a history. It’s mainly known as being started as a Methodist camp back in the 1870’s. Then more recently being known as “America’s Last Home Town”. Famous for our Monarch butterflies, Lovers Point, and the oldest lighthouse in California. But who would have thought we had such history.

I’m thinking that on the 22nd I might just have to go listen to the lecture. One of the skeletons they found belonged to a 30ish woman who died here on our peninsula only 5300 years ago.

I’ll update with more information when I get some time to play and research more.
