Cape Blanco Heritage Society (CBHS)
The 2016 Living History performances begin Wednesday, June 8, 11a.m. to 3p.m., as visitation allows. This year, we offer performances every Wednesday all summer through August 31. We will be performing “The Grandchildren,” “Jane and Annie at Home,” “San Francisco Trip,” “Tea with Father Keveny,” “Visit with a Neighbor”, and “Visitor from Ireland.” The 5-minute presentations will take you to a brief moment in time in Jane Hughes’ life at the Hughes House. Come see our presentations any Wednesday this summer.
Please take a moment and renew your membership or join CBHS today. A membership or individual donation plays a very important role in funding the Society’s interpretive and educational activities at all three sites. This membership links you to a special group of people who are dedicated to preserving and sharing the rich, historic legacy found in North Curry County, Oregon. As a member your benefits include the quarterly CBHS newsletter, a 10% discount at all 3 gift shops filled with history-related items plus knowing that your tax deductible donation is making a positive difference in the lives of so many people.
