New & Archive Photos


Stone House Heritage Day
John Marsh house tour. I have lived in this area going on 50 years and I have never seen this building I'm sad to say. It's on my calendar

EJ Phare 
Saw this photo, liked it (did you take this photo Becky?) and put it in the SPOTLIGHT to remind me to get over there and try the new pizza. 

Antioch Historical Society Museum Grounds 
This is a lousy picture of a beautiful setting. I will get by and take more soon. The new BBQ headquarters is completed (on the right side of the gazebo) the grounds are well maintained and available for rent. Call (925) 757-1326 for availability. 

Patty & Neil at the Comedy Show at Lone Tree Course last Saturday and a picture of my Asian Buffet plate 

Eleanor O'Donnell
I met this nice lady in the library room at the museum last Saturday. She is sharp as a tack and a delight to talk to. She only admits to being 75 years old and has lived in Antioch all her life. I hope to run into her again soon and hear more stories about this town I call home. You can find her on You Know You Are From Antioch When...
