History and Hops: Haystack Rock Natural History
January 30 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
History and Hops: Haystack Rock Natural History with Elaine Murdy-Trucke. At Seaside Museum’s next History & Hops session, Seaside native Elaine Trucke will share some of the stories and history of Haystack Rock. This will not be a science talk, but focused on some of the unique history surrounding the rock, including how it was named. She will recount tales of former homesteaders who wanted to build homes perched upon the rock; of hikers and climbers clambering among bird nests, of some of the daring rescues, and even the story of a wayward blasting in the 1960’s. Trucke will share what make Haystack Rock so unique and well loved.
Trucke has been the Executive Director of the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum for the last ten years. She has been a previous popular History & Hops speaker and has contributes historic articles to various publications as well as provided historical information to OPB, KGW, and KATU. Trucke is an avid mother, hiker, historian, and pluviophile.
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., 851 Broadway.
