Museums of Lake County Oral History Program takes to a New Level

The history and people of Lake County is truly amazing. Have you ever wondered what Seigler Springs Resort was like years ago? Darlene Hecomovich can tell you that her parents owned the resort. How about hearing from the man behind the company, Jonas Oil? Or the history of our former television station, LCTV in Lakeport? Yes, Lake County had its own TV station. Listen to our Oral History interviews, and you will learn more.

Members of our community retell many memories and stories from the past. Native stories are also captured, such as the voice of Millie Simon, Supervisor Moke Simon’s Aunt, and the story of how Scotts Valley Pomo Elder Leslie Miller envisioned the Pomo statute project.

Interviews are filmed in the Weaver Auditorium at the Lower Lake Schoolhouse Museum, utilizing equipment purchased by the Preservation Committee. They are 30 minutes to 2 hours long and are viewable on the Museum’s YouTube channel:
