Christmas with the Bidwells — 2021

Once again the Bidwell Mansion Association was unable to celebrate the holidays in person at Bidwell Mansion with a party for members and guests. Instead we created a virtual holiday celebration.

Join with John and Annie Bidwell and their dinner guests as they hear the story of Christmas dinner at Sutter’s Fort in 1845, based on the recollections of William Swasey. Our thanks to Nick Anderson (John Bidwell), Robyn Engel (Annie Bidwell), LaShona Haskell (Mrs. Swasey), Mike Swann (Mr. Swasey), and Saralysette Stauffer (Katie). Mrs. Blake the cook is played by yours truly, Nancy Leek. The scene was written by me and filmed and edited by Adrienne Glatz.
