Resurrection Bay Historical Society sponsors "Second Thursdays: Our History" programs that focus on aspects of local history. Beginning at 7 pm May 13 in the Library & Museum Community Room, historical society president Sue McClure will give a presentation about 1964 earthquake. She invites others who experienced the event to share comments during her program.
The Resurrection Bay Historical Society collection of objects, photographs and archives has a home in the museum portion of the Seward Community Library & Museum, 239 Sixth Ave., Seward, Alaska. The Society also maintains an index of obituaries of local residents. For questions about local history, contact us at the email listed below.
