To round out the year, we invite LCPS members & volunteers and anyone interested in becoming one to our open house and holiday cookie potluck. Bring your favorite cookie recipe from the family cookbook or just bring yourself! Family and friends are welcome.
Join us Wednesday December 21st at 6:30 pm
As we approach the centennial of the 1922 fire that destroyed the majority of downtown Astoria, we decided to discuss the pre-fire buildings that withstood conflagration, and still stand today. How and why did these structures avoid destruction? Some were saved by the quick thinking of brave and devoted citizens. Others had been built with fire safety and longevity in mind and, in turn, influenced new trends in modern construction during Astoria's rebuild.
Join us for an evening of stories and conversation!
LCPS Office - 6:30 to 8:00 PM. Refreshments will be provided.
Join us on the evening of October 26th for an old-fashioned, halloween-themed Topics in Preservation event. Enjoy seasonal refreshments as we discuss our research techniques and expose what we have uncovered about a selected group of Astoria's haunted homes. Is your Astoria house haunted? Submit your address and brief story here and perhaps we will dig up some startling tales from your property's past! Wednesday, October 26th, 6:30-8:00 pm at the LCPS office.
