NWPRRHS Presentation: NPCRR Construction Part 5

April 22 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

NWPRRHS President Charlie Siebenthal will present Part 5 of his series on the Construction of the North Pacific Coast Railroad. The long-awaited extension of the railroad from Tomales to the Russian River timber resources began but was delayed by the need to complete the tunnel on the north outskirt of Tomales plus the chronic lack of money.  Part 4 covered the completion of the road from Tomales to Howards station, which eventually was renamed Occidental. Part 5 completes the road to “New” Duncan Mills and examines the early history of the town.

Coffee and conversation at 7:30.  The program begins at 8:00 PM. Free to the public.  Bring a friend.
