Take a journey to the area once known as No Man’s Land and learn about the era when El Cerrito was known as a wide open city at a free walking tour, led by Chris Horn of the El Cerrito Historical Society.
From the teens into the 1940’s El Cerrito was a center for gambling, dog racing, drinking, and vice. The Rancho nightclub was opened in 1933, less than a month after the end of prohibition, in the historic Castro Adobe. An array of nightclubs sprang up on San Pablo Avenue. The walk will pass by the site of some of these clubs including the Rancho, Hollywood Club, the Wagon Wheel, the Kona Club and It Club.
Meet in the El Cerrito Plaza parking lot, near Macaroni Grill.
