UPCOMING EVENTS AT THE GRESHAM HISTORY MUSEUM
In June we will be dedicating our new Lending Library June 17, 2021 at 5:30 pm which will be placed outside the Museum with the help of Gresham Outdoor Public Art. We will also be participating in Third Thursdays on June 17, July 15, and August 19. Also, local author, Bruce Haney will have copies of his book, Eccentric Tales of Boring, Oregon to sell and sign on June 17 from 5 to 8.
Meet Me Under the Meier & Frank Clocks for the last time as we kick-off our Farewell to the Meier & Frank Clocks Weekend on June 26, 2021 at 11:00 am with “Rock Around the Clocks” when Richard Karman, a live DJ and historian will present music and information to celebrate the time we have had with the clocks. In 2019, the Meier & Frank Clocks were donated to the Oregon Historical Society by the local chapter of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (NAWCC). After over 20 years at the Gresham History Museum, the Meier & Frank Clocks will move to their new owner’s home at the Oregon Historical Society, most likely to their warehouse.
On Sunday, June 27, 2021 at 2 pm, we will have a ”Farewell to the Clocks” presentation with Bill Butcher of the local chapter of the NAWCC as he tells the story of the Meier & Frank Clocks. Also, local author, Bruce Haney will have copies of his book, Eccentric Tales of Boring, Oregon to sell and sign. Then on Sunday, July 25, 2021 at 1 pm, we will have a musical program with Richard Karman, featuring highlights of the “Evolution of Radio.” The Gresham History Museum will be saying farewell to a unique display of some of the earliest broadcast radios in the state and they are set to leave the Museum in early August. The Evolution of Radio will be a guided tour of not just those pieces of hardware, but the programs that were heard on those radios when they were in homes in Gresham and across Oregon.
On August 27, 2021 at 2 pm, we will present “Bigfoot and Brew” featuring Joe Beelart, author and historian who has chronicled the history of Bigfoot in Clackamas County. More details to come. We hope you will add our events to your calendar. For more information, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 503-661-0347. You can also visit them online at greshamhistorical.org
