“Thursdays: Our History” programs to resume Sept. 20

If you’ve ever wondered how the Seward Marine Industrial Center (aka SMIC) made the transition from an Independence Day picnic spot in the early 1900s to what it is today, be sure to attend the “Thursdays: Our History” program this Thursday, Sept. 20.

Beginning at 8 p.m. in the Seward Museum, Kerry Martin will show slides that he took during his time as director of Community Development for the City of Seward in the 1980s-1990s. He will provide all the details as he focuses on the development of the Seward Marine Industrial Center, which was made possible once Nash Road was extended all the way to Fourth of July Creek.


The event, which is free and open to the public, is the first of Resurrection Bay Historical Society’s monthly program series each fall and winter that takes a look at unlocking secrets of our local history.
