“A Town Called Seaside” with Gloria Linkey
March 25, 2017 @ 1:00 pmFree
In “A Town Called Seaside,” author and historian Gloria Linkey will be our tour guide as she takes us through Seaside’s origins as a summer resort town in the 1940s to the thriving tourist attraction the town has become today. Linkey’s research conjures up beautiful images of pre-World War II bygone days, where people walked the “Prom” in fine attire, and frequented the state-of-the-art aquarium. Families could also spend an afternoon watching Lone Ranger serials at one of Seaside’s two movie houses as well as participating in a variety of events that befitted a summer destination. While Linkey preserves Seaside’s past, she also demonstrates how the town has grown and changed for the better. She shows how local government and the Chamber of Commerce changed the town’s status from strictly a summer destination to a year-round resort.
Gloria Linkey is a former President of the Seaside Museum and Historical Society and current member of the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation. She is the author of “Native American Women: Three Who Changed History” and “Abby Rescues Animals.”
