Assemblyman Bigelow & Senator Berryhill Recognize Native Sons of the Golden West

Sacramento, CA...From Assemblyman Bigelow's Office..."Senator Tom Berryhill and I were honored to recognize Native Sons of the Golden West on the California State Assembly Floor. The Native Sons chapters throughout the state work tirelessly to preserve California's historical monuments, educate about our State's history, and fund raise for their cause and charitable organizations. It was an honor to recognize the Board for their 100+ years of service to our state!"




From the Native Sons of the Golden West Website..

What is a Native Son of the Golden West?

Gold and “Newcomers” both have played a big part in the history
of the state of California, and both of them played a big role in the
formation of the Native Sons of the Golden West.

To answer “What is a Native Son of the Golden West“
We must go back in history to the California Gold Rush, which was one of the unmatched marvels of American history. In 1848, California was a tranquil wilderness where the population density was so low that, on average, only one human being dwelt per each 528 square miles. But after President James K. Polk made the official announcement on Dec. 5, 1848 that gold had been discovered, things ramped up very quickly.

Gold seekers (mostly young men) came in droves from all corners of the earth. Within a short time, 100,000 people were living in California. They were industrious, civic-minded people. They held a Constitutional Convention, and activated a state government on Dec. 20, 1849. They acted so rapidly that it took Congress almost a year to catch up. Partially because California was not officially declared a state until Sept. 9, 1850.

It was an unparalleled phenomenon. No other American state has been organized in such “can-do” circumstances.
But by the mid-1870s, many more new residents were flooding into California. They were Civil War veterans seeking grants of public lands. There were people who could enjoy the convenient transportation of the newly completed transcontinental railroad.

Old-timers shook their heads and worried that, with the nature of the population changing so rapidly. That it was only a matter of time before the colorful history of the Gold Rush and early-day statehood soon would be forgotten and neglected. So they hit upon an idea. Why not form an organization of men who had been BORN in California. Whose mission it would be to preserve the state’s history.

And that’s exactly what happened, causing the Native Sons of the Golden West to be formed on July 11, 1875.

What do Native Sons of the Golden West do?
UCSFCraniofacialCenterCheckCeremoneyLong before there were such things as state historical parks and the like, in the 1880s Native Sons kicked off fund-raising campaigns to save the disintegrating buildings that were icons of early California history;

Sutter’s Fort (the refuge for early pioneers).
The Franciscan Missions (anchors of Spanish settlement in the 1700s).
The Monterey Custom House (the oldest government building in California)
We Native Sons also began placing historical markers and partnered with the state to encourage it to do the same (most notably starting with the monument at the gold discovery site at Coloma). Today, Native Sons are still very active:

Monthly Group (we call a parlor) Meetings.
Our Charitable Foudation -provides funds to hospitals caring for children born with cleft palate
Participating in local parades
Historical preservation
Dedications – including buildings or sites of historical importance
Sponsor history essay contents for school children,
Scholarship awards to high school students, co-sponsor conferences and lectures and work with other historical organizations.

We also get involved in many other non-history related civic activities and charities. And we have our social side tooDonnerCelebration22. In this day and age, when it gets tiresome staring into the screen of a TV or computer monitor, we offer an alternative: The chance to look into real human faces at a multitude of dinners, family picnics, barbecues and other just-plain-fun events.
