The Northwest’s own Martin Burwash returns from the Great White North to spin some tales about his old home town—Tacoma—western terminus of the Northern Pacific Railway. Author of Cascade Crossings and Vis Major, Martin grew up in the City of Destiny. He has put together a new show of images from the late 1960s and the early 1970s of railroading around Commencement Bay. Open house of the White River Valley Museum runs from 6:30-7:30 PM. Lecture begins at 7:30 PM.
