Come chat with a Civil War living historian at the cannon in Irvine Regional Park! The volunteer will share the history of the 1853 Howitzer cannon and how it came to be at its current location. Hear recounts of other historical elements found in and around Irvine Regional Park’s long history as well as the Civil War.

You can find the Civil War living historian located at the cannon and Spanish-American War Veterans monument at the lake, near the snack stand and boat house, between parking lots U and T.

For further questions, please contact Resource Specialist Kelley Brugmann at or call 714-973-6625.

The volunteer may take periodic breaks.

Inclement weather may cancel the program.
