On January 4th, we will be holding this month’s History Talk!
Titled “The Old Olympia Brewery: The Non-Beer Years”, Schmidt House curator Karen Johnson will discuss the evolution and varied uses of the old Olympia Brewery Buildings at the base of the lower Tumwater Falls. From 1916 through 1964, the old brewery did not make beer. What other businesses existed on the site, and what buildings did they construct? Are any existing buildings original to the brewery? Karen will answer these questions and debunk a few myths along the way.
History Talks are free to attend, and start at noon. Doors will open at 11:45a.
