Temperance and Temptation: Prohibition in Anaheim

1927 Anaheim Police Department Mug Shot

The historic Ebell Club of Anaheim was recently the site of another “spirited” AHS event, Temperance and Temptation: Prohibition in Anaheim. The lecture, given by AHS board members, Allison and Damien Montanile, shared a slew of research chronicling the Prohibition Era in Anaheim between 1870 and 1933. 

Highlights included never-before-shared photographs of Orange County, articles from Anaheim newspapers and a brief history of the Anaheim Brewery.

Prohibition Era cocktails, wine, and beer from the Anaheim Brewery livened up the party as attendees learned about the hidden history of our favorite city.

Thanks to the Ebell Club, The Anaheim Brewery and our many wonderful volunteers for making this event a great success!
