The Museum of Ventura County invites you to join us for the next installment of our bi-monthly Zoom series, Local History Happy Hour. In this series, local authors and historians will sit down with The Barbara Barnard Smith Executive Director Elena Brokaw to discuss their unique perspectives on our region’s history, and take questions from the audience.

Mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 18, 2021, from 5—6 PM for the next episode featuring Jeffrey Maulhardt, author of “A History of Oxnard.” Admission is free with registration.

Jeffrey Wayne Maulhardt was born in Oxnard and is a fifth-generation Ventura County descendant of the Maulhardt and Borchard families. Jeffrey’s deep connections to the area helped in his accumulation of images, used to document the city’s history beyond his two previous titles in the Images of “America Series: Oxnard: 1867-1940” and “Oxnard: 1941-2004.”

Jeffrey Maulhardt taught American History for thirty years in the Oxnard Elementary School District, and is now is working on his 16th local history book for Arcadia Publishing, “Oxnard Now & Then.” He is the founder of the Oxnard Historic Farm Park and his books can be purchased at the Oxnard Historic Farm Park Foundation website.
