Blackhawk before 'Blackhawk'

How would it have been to live in Blackhawk in the 1930s and '40s? Stop by the Museum of the San Ramon Valley from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, April 26, and meet Alvin and Marge Bacon Hauschildt to find out. Alvin grew up on the Blackhawk Ranch where his father was the manager. He graduated from San Ramon Valley High School in 1948, and his wife Marge graduated three years later. The community known today as Blackhawk was not built until 1979.

The Museum's weekly special guests are in conjunction with its current exhibit, "Agriculture, For a Century, the Business of the Valley," which highlights the period of 1850-1950. It runs through May 10. For more information, call 837-3750 or go to
