History and Hops: Terrible Tilly Tales
May 31, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
History and Hops: Terrible Tilly Tales with Brian Ratty. The Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, aka Terrible Tilly, is as iconic an Oregon north coast landmark as Haystack Rock. Construction of the lighthouse took 500 days and was completed in January 1881. It was decommissioned in 1957 yet the lighthouse structure remains. Standing 134 feet tall it has withstood the winds, storms and waves for 137 years, creating a history of its own. Family history with Terrible Tilly drove Brian Ratty to write his most recently released book “Tillamook Rock Lighthouse: History and Tales of Terrible Tilly”. Local historian, photographer and author, Brian Ratty, is a retired media executive and graduate of Brooks Institute of Photography. He has written numerous magazine articles about the Pacific Northwest and won awards for his historical fiction novels. For more than thirty years, he has traveled the vast wilderness of the Pacific Coast in search of images and stories that reflect its spirit and splendor.
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.
