While we look forward to our annual Talking Tombstones event every year, this year, the Clatsop County Historical Society is keeping our distance. Sadly, Talking Tombstones will not take place.

For the 16 years, Talking Tombstones has entertained and educated the public with graveside tales about some of the region’s most prominent and not-so-prominent citizens. Audiences, typically of more than 500 each year, have heard stories of outstanding achievements, narratives of tenacious perseverance, and accounts of heart-rendering tragedy.

We cannot mask our enthusiasm for the return of Talking Tombstones in October of 2021 and look forward to seeing you then.

For more information about this event or other Clatsop County Historical Society activities, please call 503-325-2203 or e-mail:
