The Hidden History of Old Town’s Landscape

Talks/Lectures

Job Carr could have chosen many locations for settlement in the Commencement Bay area - why did he choose Old Town? Join us for a vigorous walking tour of Old Town as we envision how it was when Job arrived. This one-hour hike will explore the site of Job’s cry of Eureka! at his discovery of a lagoon, forested hills, two fresh water creeks, and deep gulches that were home to wildlife. Meet at the Job Carr Cabin Marker at the intersection of Carr and 31st streets.
