History & Hops Explores the Mouth of the Columbia
The immense structures that define the mouth of the Columbia River took more than 50 years to build with the best turn-of-the-century technology. For the North Jetty, alone, steamships and locomotives moved and placed over 3 million tons of stone. Their construction has had a profound effect on both the people and the landscape of our region.
“Rails in the Surf: Reshaping the Mouth of the Columbia River”, the story of the construction of the jetties — a story of pile drivers and railroad cars, of tugs and barges and of locomotives and shipwreck – will be recounted at Seaside Museum’s monthly History & Hops on Thursday, September 27th at 6PM at the Seaside Brewing Co by Gary Kobes.
Kobes, a Chinook resident and self-described “history addict,” is manager of the Astoria-Warrenton Regional Airport, and volunteers on the boards of the Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum (CPHM) in Ilwaco as well as the Columbia River Maritime Museum. He is a founding member of the Nahcotta railroad passenger car preservation committee and has a deep affinity for the history of railroads and engineering. According to CPHM Director Betsy Millard, Kobes is known among researchers and historians of the area as “the go-to expert” for information about the jetties on both sides of the Columbia river.
History & Hops is a series of local history discussions hosted by the Seaside Museum on the last Thursday of each month, September through May, at Seaside Brewing Co., 861 Broadway.
