Beaver Tales and Treasure Trails – Cannon Beach!
September 11, 2022 @ 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM$25.00
Please join the Resident Historian, Doug Kenck-Crispin for this (potentially) enriching discussion of still undiscovered Oregon treasure hordes. On September 11th, 2022 at 11:00am, in faaaancy Cannon Beach!, DKC will present Beaver Tales and Treasure Trails, an examination of three major threads in this vein. The first will be a discussion of the Beeswax shipwreck legends, the latest deveoplments of the Santo Cristo de Burgos investigation, and the aged treasure yarns associated with this Nahalem wreck. Doug will then move onto the topic of Beaver Money (or Golden Beavers), and the currious currency created by Oregon, before she became a state, said to comprise a considerable collection of these concealed caches! And finally, he will reacquaint the audience with the Portland Treasure Chart; a map to a hidden Civil War gold horde buried in a grave in the city of Portland. Maybe. Author/Historian JB Fisher and DKC have been visitng a few cemetaries just “too miles fromrom Portland,” so there’s some new shit that has come to light to share with you!
