Come and visit with us and learn more about on Washington’s history. Ballard Historical Society’s free spring lecture by Dr. Lorraine McConaghy of MOHAI, “New Land, North of the Columbia” is on Wednesday, April 4, 2012 from 7-8:30 p.m. Dr. McConaghy, public historian at MOHAI, will take us on a journey through the fascinating original documents she researched for her new book, New Land, North of the Columbia. These sources tell the story of Washington territory back to 1853.
Dr. McConaghy traveled for more than a year throughout Washington State, visiting public and university libraries, historical society archives, and federal, state, county and municipal archives.
She has received many awards for her research and publications, and is an entertaining speaker.
