Local History Class: 10 Days That Shook the South Coast

The Coos History Museum will again offer a Local History Class this winter presented by historian and museum volunteer Steven Greif.

This year’s ten-week class will be held on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM starting Wednesday, January 5th through Wednesday, March 9th. This class, as a fundraising effort for the museum, has a $60 class fee for museum members, and $70 fee for non-members. This hybrid program will allow us to host up to 40 participants in-person at the CHM and the remainder will be able to join us online via Zoom.

This year’s class, called “10 Days That Shook the South Coast”, will focus on ten different days on the Southern Oregon Coast that had an extraordinary impact on local history. These historical local events often even made state and national news. Using a narrated slide show that includes many photos from the Coos History Museum’s collection, Greif will illustrate the timeline of each day’s events. This includes background information leading up to each historical day and a discussion of what happened after each momentous event.
