Popular Nehalem Bay history course returns

This is a vintage photo of the Mohler creamery. A hundred years ago, dairy farmers brought milk to the cheese factory at Mohler. Since 1976, the building has been the Nehalem Bay Winery.

MANZANITA — The Nehalem Valley Historical Society announces the return of the “History of the Nehalem Bay Area” series led by Mark Beach at Pine Grove Community House (225 Laneda Ave.).

The series begins Monday, Oct. 16, and meets 4 to 5:30 p.m. every Monday and Thursday until Thursday, Nov. 2.

All presentations involve extensive use of historical photos and include time for questions and discussion.

New classes include “From Indians to Homesteaders” and “Selling the Seashore” with unique information and photos.

Mark Beach has a Ph.D. in history, taught at Cornell University and worked at the Smithsonian Institution before moving to Oregon in 1992. This history course will draw from Beach’s research into north Tillamook County and will feature his extensive collection of historical photos.

The $50 fee includes membership in the Historical Society, a DVD and map about local history, as well as all course materials. Current Historical Society members pay $35.

To sign up, call the Historical Society at 503-368-7460, or apply at Pine Grove on the first date, Monday, Oct. 16.
