Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Palo Alto History But Were Afraid to Ask (until now)

January 22, 2023
2:00 - 4:00 pm
Palo Alto Art Center, 1313 Newell Road, Palo Alto

This month’s PAHA program is your chance to find answers to those Palo Alto history questions you have wondered about. Now you will have the opportunity to ask the experts as PAHA Historian Steve Staiger will host a panel of local experts for a fun interactive program with audience participation. Joining Steve will be two PAHA Board Members, Jerry Tinney and Jeff Day, and a local journalist, Gennady Sheyner.

Since he was born in the old Palo Alto Hospital, Jerry Tinney has lived in and around Palo Alto for 89 years. During that time, Jerry has experienced a great deal of Palo Alto history that he loves to share. Although much younger, Jeff Day knows a lot of Palo Alto facts, trivia, and tidbits. Palo Alto Weekly journalist Gennady Sheyner has been reporting Palo Alto news since 2008. His knowledge of the recent past will be valuable in our responses to your questions.

Join us on January 22nd at 2:00 pm and bring your questions! You may also be able to help provide an answer to some Palo Alto puzzles.
