History Hike to Feature Irondale Beach

Jefferson County Historical Society’s final History Hike of the season will explore Irondale Beach. It will take place on Saturday, October 22, with a choice of starting times at either 11 a.m. or 2 p.m.

Hike guide will be David Brownell, executive director of the North Olympic History Center, which is the cosponsor of the hike series. Brownell has led historic preservation efforts for the Seminole tribe of Florida and the local Jamestown S’Klallam tribe. He is a member of the Clallam County Heritage Advisory Board and the Jefferson Land Trust board.

The History Hikes, which started in the spring, have featured a variety of historically significant places in Jefferson County, including qatáy Lagoon, Fort Flagler, and Indian Island. Participants for the Irondale Beach event—limited to groups of 12—will be responsible for their own transportation to and from the departure site.

The hike, which will last about 90 minutes, will cost $45 for historical society or history center members and $60 for nonmembers. Registration is being handled by Simpletix, with a link from the Calendar page of jchsmuseum.org.
