California's Gold: Will Rogers
Tue, Mar 12th from 7:30PM
The family loved the place so much that Will had a proper ranch built and the family moved there in 1928. In 1944, after the death of Mrs. Rogers, the property became Will Rogers State Historic Park and is now a well loved tourist destination. The ranch has been perfectly maintained and is filled with all of the Rogers family original furnishings and memorabilia. It's like stepping back into Will's boots. What makes Huell's tour so special, is that it's given by Will's last remaining child Jimmy Rogers. Jimmy grew up at the ranch and shares many wonderful memories of a home that was dearly loved by all. This program is now itself a part of California' s history because shortly after the interview was filmed, Jimmy Rogers passed away. From the ranch buildings to the polo fields that Will hosted many matches on, to the personal remembrances of his son, it's a tour you won't want to miss.
