“Wells Fargo & the Mystery of Black Bart” will be presented by the Cloverdale Historical Society on Tuesday, Nov. 13 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Cloverdale Performing Arts Center, 209 N. Cloverdale Blvd.
Black Bart, who also went by the names Charles Earl Bowles and Charles Bolton, was an Old West outlaw noted for the poetic messages he left after two of his robberies.
Between July 1875 and November 1883, he held up more than two dozen stagecoaches, including one on the Ukiah to Cloverdale route and two on the Lakeport to Cloverdale route.
Discover the clue that finally led to his capture and subsequent four year incarceration at San Quentin. Upon his release, he left the area and was never heard from again.
Guest Speakers will include Marianne Babel, V.P., Historian Wells Fargo Bank, San Francisco and Chris Berry, Historian and Researcher for the Cloverdale Historical Society.
A $5 donation is requested. Reception to follow, featuring music by Ernie Hunt & his Cowboy Trio.
