OOPS is going to Nehalem Bay State Park on August 26-29. We've invited Tom Campbell with the Nehalem Valley Historical Society to share some of the history of the area.
Tom Campbell is the President of the Nehalem Valley Historical Society. He and his wife, Kris, along with their dogs, Spike and Zoe, are full time residents of Manzanita.
Tom is originally from the suburbs of Detroit. He came west to the Puget Sound area in 1979 to attend law school and never left. He was a trial attorney there for 30 years and retired to Manzanita in 2014.
In retirement, Tom has taken up surfing, found time to hit Manzanita Links and continues to enjoy running, biking and paddle boarding on the Nehalem. He reads presidential biographies and other historical non-fiction for pleasure.
Tom joined the Nehalem Valley Historical Society soon after becoming a full time resident. Together with other members, he led the historical society into a renovation of their exhibits and established regular hours to have the facility open. If you’re interested in local history NVHS is something you should not miss.
Tom’s program will take you through some local history, point out some special places to see when you visit and highlight some activities that you might find enjoyable.
