Students in Education toured San Miguel on May 14th. Led by Lillian Larsen Student Teacher Maria Parker, the students toured the town and Lillian Larsen School before enjoying lunch at Dos Hermanos. The purpose of the visit was to see how social, cultural, historical, political, economic, and educational factors  affect individual acculturation in California and the United States and influence how Latino/as experience and participate with schooling in the United States.  Lillian Larsen School continues to partner with Cal Poly State University to provide student teaching and co-teaching positions for the Teacher Credential Program.

    History Project: 

    Have you noticed the Green Parrot on the fence as you come into San Miguel?  It is hard to miss.

     It was painted and installed by Steve Kalar for the History Project. It identifies the approximate location of what was once The GREEN PARROT .  Below is a menu card from that restaurant which was built to accommodate the railroad  crews and was a thriving restaurant and bar back in the day. It later became the Mission Trails Cafe.  It was hit by a train when it derailed in an accident; southern portion damaged, but repaired.  As far as we can tell, it was finally taken down sometime in the early 1970's, but this is information we are trying to confirm.  So...if you happen to have any information about this restaurant or site, or ANY INFORMATION or PHOTOS related to this or other San Miguel history,  please...PLEASE contact us  at 2011SMRC@gmail.com.

    Do you have any photos or maps or information  about San Miguel's past that you would be willing to share with us or if you'd like to get involved, we'd  love to hear from you. We have been meeting to work on sorting and filing documents.  We'd be happy to hear from you if you'd like to help. . We're interested in your stories and especially your stories of your ancestors in San Miguel.   2011SMRC@gmail.com.  Be sure to check out the posts on the history discussion board  You may have input to add or you may find something about where you live  or lived in town
