In Their Footsteps: A Town Called Seaside


November 9, 2017

Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, Fort Clatsop has announced the next In Their Footsteps free speaker series event. A Town Called Seaside will be shared by Gloria Stiger Linkey on Sunday, November 19, at 1:00 p.m.

Gloria Linkey will share from her research for her 2017 book, A Town Called Seaside, a decade-by-decade story of Seaside, Oregon - from a summer resort town in the 1940s to the thriving tourist attraction and community it is today. Linkey remembers pre-World War II days, when people walked the “Prom” in fine attire or watched Lone Ranger serials at one of Seaside’s two movie theaters. She will also demonstrate how the town has grown and improved with the help of many dedicated people and organizations.

Linkey is a past president of the Seaside Museum & Historical Society and a member of the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation. Her previous books are Native American Women: Three Who Changed History and Abby Rescues Animals.

A Town Called Seaside will be available for purchase at this event. Linkey’s earlier history book is available at the Lewis & Clark National Park Association bookstore in the Fort Clatsop visitor center. There will be a book-signing following her presentation.

In Their Footsteps is a monthly Sunday forum sponsored by the Lewis & Clark National Park Association and the park. These programs are held in the Netul River Room of Fort Clatsop’s visitor center and are free of charge.

For more information, call the park at (503) 861-2471, or check out, or Lewis and Clark National Historical Park on Facebook.
