HistoryLunch 2016: The Ballard Locks, 100 Years
This year at HistoryLunch, we will explore the history of the Hiram M. Chittenden (Ballard) Locks as HistoryLink builds up steam for the upcoming centennial in 2017. HistoryLink has many plans in store for next year, including the release of our new book and educational curricula, various speaking events, and the addition of both audio and video materials to our newly designed website all of which will be here in time for the centennial.
This years HistoryLunch will kick off the centennial commemoration of the locks. Award- winning author of Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattles Topography, geologist, natural historian, and co-author of our upcoming book on the Ballard Locks, David B. Williams will delight and amaze you with the story of how and why the locks came to be.
As usual, there will be surprises, and we promise not to be dull! RSVP for yourself, sponsor a table, or sponsor the event.
