Afternoon Salon Series: The Great Northern Mainline Through Central Washington with Dan Bolyard

Wednesday, September 4, 2019

Dan will cover the evolution of locations along the Great Northern mainline between Wenatchee to Spokane. He will feature old photos, maps, fires, and maybe a wreck or two. Included will be information on mergers, abandonments, and current operations.

Dan will also speak on the fight for the county seat between Adrian, Wilson Creek, and Ephrata. Dan is an author and area historian focusing on the railroads of the Central Basin. He lives in Coulee City. This is his fifth presentation for the Moses Lake Museum.
It is through conversation that communities thrive. These programs are intended to bring conversation back into our modern lives – welcome to the afternoon
Salon Series.

Inspired by the 16th Century European movement, the “salon” was an informal intellectual gathering popular through the late 19th Century. Today’s salons take many forms, from formal lectures to informal get-togethers at friends’ homes.

These programs will draw on local speakers who want to share what they are passionate about. Our 21st Century version of the salon is a venue where local ideas matter.

Join the Moses Lake Museum & Art Center in the Civic Center Auditorium for select 1st Wednesday’s throughout the year.

Programs begin at 3pm.
