Tillamook County Historical Society
Fall Meeting on October 11
The Tillamook County Historical Society (TCHS) is having their fall meeting at Camp Meriwether on October 11, 2016 at 11 a.m. Camp Meriwether is about 20 minutes south of Tillamook on Hwy 101; take the Sand Lake exit if heading south, continue on to Cape Lookout Road. Distance from entrance from paved road to the Dining Lodge is approximately 1.9 miles on gravel road. Follow the signs pointing to "Deliveries."
There will be a very short meeting, followed by a presentation about the camp and tour of the grounds. Members and non-members are most welcome. Bring a friend! Many of us are bringing a sack lunch to enjoy in this beautiful setting.
The TCHS has just completed a book about the Chamberlain family who homesteaded this property and how the Boy Scout Council acquired it for Camp Meriwether. Entitled "Life at a Pioneer Homestead on the Pacific Ocean," it will be for sale that day.
