in the plaza in front of Wells Fargo Bank (1900 Broadway).
The community is invited to join in and honor Redwood City’s rich past.
Wells Fargo has played a significant role in funding the development of the Path of History information kiosk and sculpture, located across the street from the site of the Wells Fargo Express Office that was active in Redwood City from 1875-1917. The Mayor’s short dedication ceremony features an appearance by the Wells Fargo horse-drawn stagecoach, harkening back to Redwood City’s rich history of the old west. In addition, the new historic information kiosk and the commemorative sculpture will be unveiled, and the new self-guided historic walking tour brochure will be available. Immediately following the ceremony, Wells Fargo will host a reception in their lobby.
Redwood City, its Historic Resources Advisory Committee, and its Planning Commission have been working for the past year on the Path of History project. It’s a wonderful new Downtown attraction which will draw people to enjoy and appreciate historic Redwood City. As the first completed stopping point on Redwood City’s new Path of History, the corner of Broadway and Main is the ideal location for this short ceremony to honor Redwood City’s past. RSVPs to this ceremony are appreciated by contacting Dee Eva at (650) 368-4800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
