Today my neighbor Jean and I drove up to Santa Paula, CA to check out the sculptures and murals around the old town district. We parked at the old train depot and started our walk around town. Santa Paula, CA is located in the Heritage Valley in Ventura County. It is a small farming town dating back to the 1890s.
Our first top was to check out the sculptures of 2 motorcycle officers who bravely road all over town the night the St. Francis Dam collapsed up-river in the Santa Clarita Valley. The wall of water was heading straight for Santa Paula and the officers went from house to house warning people of the danger that was heading their way.
We then checked out the Migrant Farm Workers memorial.
We then started to find the murals that are painted on the sides of the old buildings that depict the history of Santa Paula.
On our way back to the car, we came upon a huge fig tree near the train depot and then we looked down the tracks that headed for home.
