Think youÕve seen what there is to see at McConaghy House? Think again. Through our new tour series, ÒIf These Walls Could Talk,Ó the Hayward Area Historical Society (HAHS) hopes to show that the McConaghy House has endless stories to tell in addition to the family history. Open to visitors on the first weekend of every month.
This season, the first tour in ÒIf These Walls Could TalkÓ examines, at length, the McConaghy FamilyÕs, journey to this country and their experience in America. Following our Scots-Irish Immigration tour on Saturday, March 18th we will hold our first Community Conversation from 12:30 p.m. Ð 2:00 p.m., a discussion about the history of immigration in the Hayward Area and current events. HAHS will host a panel of historians, city and county officials and those familiar with immigration law to talk about the past, present and how we can support each other as a community. Snacks will be provided
The conversation will feature guest speakers including Hayward City Councilman Francisco Zermeno, Hayward City Councilman Mark Salinas and Immigration Lawyer Spojmie Nasiri. Each speaker will address the topic and answer questions.
