Go behind-the-scenes in Orange County
Board the OCHS Mystery Machine (bus) in Orange at 9:00 a.m. and join us on a tour of fascinating, often-overlooked O.C. historic sites, including little-known spots you may never be able to visit again. We can't say where we're going... because it's a MYSTERY! But you'll be guided by local history experts, receive a box lunch (included in the tour price), and return to Orange before dinnertime. Wear comfortable shoes, since you'll be doing some exploring on foot. This mysterious expedition is open to OCHS members and non-members alike, so bring your friends. Confirmations and further instructions will be sent via email.
