Description History is happening in the Redmond area and we welcome you to our meeting. The Redmond Historical Society will meet on Saturday, May 11, 2013, 10:30 a.m. to noon, at The Old Redmond Schoolhouse Community Center, 16600 NE 80 St, Redmond, WA. Dick Blumenthal will be discussing the history of maritime exploration in Puget Sound country, from early Spanish voyages to George Vancouver, Charles Wilkes, later Admiralty voyages, and the U. S. Coast Surveys. He will highlight some of our better known place names, along with history behind the names. Dick began his interest in boating at age five on Lake Washington. As he became interested in local maritime history, and investigated the journals of the early explorers, he eventually wrote three books on inland Washington waters. Don’t miss this program.
