The Story of James Dougherty

Beverly Lane, Museum Curator and Board Member, presented The Story of James Dougherty.

The Story of James Dougherty

The Dougherty name adorns a valley, a major road, hills, shopping areas, and schools, both an elementary as well as a high school. Obviously, there must be a reason this name has become such a prominent part of our valley.

The Dougherty family has been in the United States since the 1700’s immigrating from Ireland.  James Witt Dougherty traveled from the deep south to make his fame and fortune in what was to become the Dougherty Valley. Learn about his many and varied exploits. Have you ever heard of the town of Dougherty?
