Did Francis Drake and the Golden Hind Land at Whale Cove in 1579?

Thursday, May 16, 2019, 4:00 PM

We don’t always talk about Sir Francis Drake, but when we do, we like to talk about his connections to Oregon. May is all things ships, wrecks, and lore. Who better to clear things up than Melissa Darby, M.A. Melissa is an anthropologist and an archaeologist with over thirty years experience in the field. She can speak on the enthnobiology of the people of the Lower Columbia, theory relating to Sir Francis Drake landing in Oregon, architecture of the Northwest Coast People including Kalapuya, Oregon Coast and Chinookan peoples, and on a skillet possibly from the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Her power point presentations incorporate old photographs, maps, drawings and splendid animation. This event is free and open to the public. Seating for this presentation is limited, so arrive early to get your seat. Doors close at 4:15 p.m. This event has been sponsored by Cannon Beach Vacation Rentals!
