RANCHO DOMINGUEZ—In the fall of 1849, forty-eight delegates from California gathered at Colton Hall in Monterey, California for its Constitutional State Convention, a key event in moving California towards statehood. Among the forty-eight delegates that contributed to the discourse of the event was Manuel Dominguez, a prominent land grant owner, businessman, and three-term mayor of the Pueblo of Los Angeles. In an effort to educate the public about California’s rich history and encourage active participation in California’s political sphere. The Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum will be hosting a series of public programs that highlight the importance of the California Convention Debates and Manuel Dominguez’s contribution to it. The event is free and open to the public. Saturday, March 7, 1–2 pm Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum 18127 South Alameda Street Rancho Dominguez, CA 90220
