Get acquainted with friendly Bridgeport ghosts

The friendly ghosts of Bridgeport – folks who lived around Bridgeport in the 1800s – will come to life again on Sunday, Oct. 28, at 12:30 p.m. to tell their stories. Shown here is Howard Voshell as Alfred Kneebone as he tells about his gas station and the Kneebone Pleasure Resort just upriver. The builder of the present covered bridge, a Maidu Native American and a hunter/trapper are some of the other ghosts you’ll see on a visit to the Kneebone Cemetery. Mountain Laurel plays music, the grub (hot dogs, ice cream) is good, gold is panned and a blacksmith will produce items used back when.

All park facilities, including the barn and wagon exhibit, are open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free. Bridgeport is located at 17660 Pleasant Valley Road in Penn Valley, eight miles north of Hwy. 20. Call 432-2546 for more information.
