Author to speak at Kitsap museum

Richard Blumenthal, author of “Maritime Place Names: Inland Washington Waters” will speak at the Kitsap County Historical Society Museum, Thursday, July 18, at 6:30 pm.

Blumenthal has written a historical text on Washington state maritime place names. The manuscript makes extensive use of quotes of the observations from early explorers, to document their reasons for various names and to provide readers with an impression of what Puget Sound looked like 150 to 200 years ago.

A reception will begin at 6:30 p.m. and the lecture will be at 7 p.m. Admission is $20 for the general public and $10 for members. For reservations call 360-479-6226. All attendees will receive a complimentary appetizer coupon redeemable at Anthony’s at Sinclair Inlet.
