OB Historical Society Presents: The Carlson & Higgins OB Scandals

From Ocean Beach Historical Society: Thursday,  April 21, 7 pm at P.L. United Methodist Church, 1984 Sunset Cliffs Blvd., O.B.
The OBHS presents “The  Carlson & Higgins  O.B. Scandals” By Bruce Semelsberger. In 1887 Billy Carlson and Frank Higgins (credited as the founders of O.B.) renamed “Mussel Beds” to “Ocean Beach”. Following that they were linked to numerous scandals. To name a few: land deals, an O.B. hotel and trains. Later Carlson became San Diego’s youngest Mayor; while Higgin’s became a tragic figure. Suggested OBHS Program donation $5, but any donation is appreciated.
