Meet the Humboldt Historians!


May is National Preservation Month, and the Clarke Museum and the Humboldt County Historical Society are celebrating with a joint fundraising event featuring local authors who’ve written and published widely on almost every aspect of our county’s history.
Meet the Humboldt Historians will occur at the Clarke Museum in Old Town Eureka on May 20th from 1 pm to 3 pm. You will have the opportunity to meet your favorite local history authors, order new books, and get copies signed! There will be an author panel focused on why recording and writing about local history is so important, and there will be plenty of opportunities for questions.
A selection of delicious hors d’oeuvres prepared by local chef Chris Cassaro will be provided, along with complimentary soft drinks, beer, and wine.

Tickets to the fundraiser are $100 each, or $85 for members of the Clarke Museum or the Humboldt County Historical Society, and all proceeds will be shared equally between the two organizations. Tickets are available online at or by phone from the Clarke at 707-443-1947 or the Historical Society at 707-445-4342.
