Author Sharrie with Katie Keys Past President of the Perris
Valley Historical Museum and Perris Mayor Daryl Busch.
|Sharrie Williams with her friend, David (Hook) Van Houten, long time filmmaker and Producer of Borderline Hollywood. David Van Houten's roots in Perris date back to the 1800's, when Perris was home to the regions gold rush...the Hook family still own the Santa Rosa Gold Mine. David is deeply revered by the people in Perris and produced the movie, “D Street: A 45 minute Documentary” that captures a century’s worth of Perris history, culture, diversity, development and recreational activities and opportunities. He has also donated much of his family's heirlooms and personal history to the Perris Historical Museum.|

I was delighted to meet Riverside County supervisor Maroin Ashley at the my 100 years of Maybelline event and was very excited to hear that in late 2015 a new railway stop will be stationed in Perris. It will extend the existing 91 Line, which runs from Los Angeles Union Station to Fullerton, Corona and Riverside.

According to Perris Mayor Daryl Busch, who also sits on the commission, there will be a new train station in downtown Perris. I will be the first to get my Passport to Perris and catch the train when it makes it's first stop at the Perris train station.... Finally after 100 years since Perris was part of Gold fever, it will be back on the map. Watch out people, because property values are going to skyrocket in the next ten years if things go the way they are for the "Little Train That Could."
