Clark County Historical Society Hosts History Townhall in Ridgefield
The Clark County Historical Museum (CCHM) and the City of Ridgefield will host the first in a series of countywide town hall conversations about each community’s history and heritage at 6 p.m. on July 25, 2016 at the A Pickled Heron Gallery and Ballroom (418 Pioneer St. Ridgefield).
The evening will begin with a moderated panel discussion comprised of community historians. Each panelist will delve into the historical people, places, or moments they feel embody the spirit of Ridgefield history. A question and answer session with the audience will follow. During that time, the community historians and citizens of Ridgefield will examine the city's place in Clark County history and along the way tell many great stories about their history and home.
Over the next few years, CCHM will install a permanent exhibition telling the overall story of Clark County's history. These town halls, held in the different Clark County communities, will act as an inspiration for each community’s representation in this story. Each evening will be recorded and reviewed by those working on the exhibition.
Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and the discussion will start at 6 p.m. Admission is free. For more event information and questions, contact the museum at [email protected] or by phone at 360-993-5679.
