ALVHS Lecture - A Place Called Sunol

A Place Called Sunol
Presented by Connie DeGrange
This popular book is a collection of pictures, interviews, facts and stories about a town with a strong community spirit and sense of place. It traces the history of Sunol from the Ohlone who lived peacefully for thousands of years in the Sunol Valley, through the rough-and-tumble changes brought by gold rush-era immigration, railroads and water-projects to the small community it is today.

De Grange said that her favorite part of writing the book, aside from working with her father, was interviewing the old-timers and recording their stories. “A Place Called Sunol” includes stories from several residents who passed away only months after the book was published. Their stories told of a time when Sunol was an important stop on the route from the Bay Area to the Sierra foothills, when residents made their living from local resources, and when growth seemed inevitable.

A native Californian, De Grange and her husband have made Sunol their home for 25 years, raising two children who are now in college. Connie De Grange is employed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. She believes the best of Sunol is also the best of California, that Sunol's history reflects California's history, and that history told through stories is history brought to life.

This lecture is sponsored by Rebecca Bruner, Realtor with Hometown GMAC Real Estate.
Sponsor: ALVHS (Amador-Livermore Valley Historical Society)
Location: Museum on Main Street.  603 Main St, Pleasanton
