Events

The next “Fourth Thursdays: Our History” program is set to begin at 7 pm Thursday, Oct. 25. There will be a slide show featuring circa 1980 images of the Suneel coal terminal and Louisiana Pacific sawmill. The audience will be encouraged to chime in with any memories they have regarding these topics. The event is free and open to the public.

RBHS will host a table in the Seward Community Library Museum atrium at the 5th annual Open House Saturday, Nov. 10. Please check out a display of photo albums and scrapbooks that were digitized this past winter thanks to a Museums Alaska grant and lots of volunteer effort!

Windows of History

Summer Time in Seward is featured in the atrium's window display area at the Seward Community Library Museum. View historic photos showing summer activities in Seward over the years.

Temporary Exhibit

"History of the Seward Dairy" occupies the temporary exhibit corner in the Seward Museum. Check out the photos, newspaper articles and artifacts that detail the history of this longtime area business. You'll learn that the Leirer family did not start the dairy enterprise, although they did operate it for many years until its closure in the 1950s.
