Zoom lecture: Twice as Many Wharves, by Jerry Rohde

October 16 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Because the Arcata Marsh Interpretive Center remains closed to visitors, monthly lectures sponsored by Friends of the Arcata Marsh (FOAM) will be delivered via Zoom. Tune in at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, October 16 for a presentation by local historian Jerry Rohde entitled “Twice as Many Wharves.”

Many people know that the Arcata & Mad River Railroad ran a train on the wharf that was located in what is now the Arcata Marsh. But how many of you know that there was a second train and a second wharf? If this is news to you, tune in to Jerry’s talk, which will be recorded and posted online for future viewing. There will be a Q&A session after the presentation. Jerry Rohde has researched Humboldt County history for 30 years. He lectures frequently and will soon have a history of eastern Arcata Bay published by the Humboldt State University Press.
