EUREKA—The Humboldt Bay Harbor Working Group (HBHWG) is hosting Pete Johnston who will give a presentation on the Timber Heritage Association and their goals for the greater Humboldt Bay area. The presentation will take place at the Samoa Cookhouse Wednesday, February 26, 2014 from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m.
“The goals of the Timber Heritage Association are two-fold: one is the desire to create an engaging museum at the historic Samoa Shops complex adjacent to the Samoa Cookhouse, and the other is the desire to operate an excursion train on the shores of Humboldt Bay and beyond,” stated Pete Johnston.
The Timber Heritage Association (THA) is a volunteer based group whose purpose is to create an awareness and appreciation for the impact of timber, logging, and railroads on the settlement and growth of Humboldt County. THA is working to create a timber heritage and rail museum and develop a Humboldt Bay excursion train. The combined projects will impress on visitors and residents alike the tremendous role the timber industry has played in the history of California and the West, and will create a tourist destination and educational facility for all to enjoy.
Lunch costs $12.95 with an option of only soup and salad for $8.95. This month they will be serving Chicken Parmesan, beginning at 12 noon with the presentation beginning about 12:30 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to RSVP by calling Charlie Bean at 441-1974, by February 24, 2014. The Samoa Cookhouse is located off Cookhouse Road, the first street south of the Samoa Bridge on the peninsula.
