Arcata Wharves Zoom Lecture Staff Pick

When: Fri., Oct. 16, 7:30 p.m. 2020
Historian Jerry Rohde presents “Twice as Many Wharves.” Many people know that the Arcata & Mad River Railroad ran a train on the wharf that was located in what is now the Arcata Marsh. But how many of you know that there was a second train and a second wharf? If this is news to you, tune in to Jerry’s talk, which will be recorded and posted online for future viewing. There will be a Q&A session after the presentation. Jerry will acquaint you with the “Shingle” Wharf that ignited in 1900 with four million shingles (and a train) on top of it. His presentation also will explain why there was never a “McDaniels” Slough and how the bay dredge “Jupiter” was resuscitated from the Arcata Bay mud and went on to build the dikes along the shore.
