Kim Copel Harris continues the lecture series this Thursday night (September 28th) at the Gold Hill Hotel. She will be doing a Chautauqua performance on the life of Charlie Parkhurst: Stagecoach Driver. Lecture starts at 7 p.m.
“Charley Parkhurst” (Bio):
Known as one of the premiere “whips” of all stage drivers, One-Eyed Charley Parkhurst came to the west from Rhode Island during the Gold Rush era of the 1850s. At times Charley worked with famous local stage driver Hank Monk who was known as the “Jehu of the Sierras”. Charley’s route was at one time through Carson Valley between the California gold fields and the Comstock. Hop on board Charley’s coach and take the ride of your life. And mind you, Charley’s stage waits for no man…or woman!
