History:

1876 California accepted a Christopher Columbus and Queen Isabella Statue from Darius Ogden. The statue is displayed in the Rotunda of the State Capital. Valued at $30,000, it was crafted by Larkin G. Mead in Florence, Italy.

1892 President Harrison declared October 12, 1492 as the day America was discovered by Christopher Columbus.

1909 California declared October 12 a legal holiday, to be known as "Discovery Day."

1911 Assemblyman Dismo M. De Negri of San Francisco changed the name of the holiday to "Columbus Day."

1910 President Taft declared October 12 to be a legal U.S. holiday.

1915 The San Francisco Columbus Day Committee was organized by the Salesian Fathers of St. Peter and Paul's Church in the heart of North Beach.
