HCHS Events: Community Outreach

The Humboldt County Historical Society aims to evoke a sense of place within the local community by connecting Humboldt County residents to the historical context of our shared home. To this end we work to organize events that showcase unique materials from our collections in local public spaces. We hope that public interaction with these materials at local exhibits and events will generate interest and investment in preserving Humboldt County's cultural heritage.

Ghosts of Christmas Past at the Eagle House

  • The Inn at 2nd and C (map)

We are pleased to announce our annual fundraising dinner will be held at the Historic Eagle House again this winter. Join us for dinner, a historical presentation, and ghostly tales on December 1st. 

Usher in the holiday season by celebrating the ancient tradition of telling ghost stories at Yuletide in the historic - and haunted - Eagle House. The splendid tour guides of Old Town Haunted History Ghost Tours will open a window onto the "other side of history." Ghostly legends will be presented about the Inn building and Eureka's famous red light district, "North of Fourth." 

A night in one of the Inn's famously haunted rooms will be auctioned off during the event. 

Tickets are $75/person (this is the annual fundraiser for our non-profit) and are available through the HCHS office at (707)445-4342. All profits will benefit the Humboldt County Historical Society collections.

Only 100 tickets are available and must be reserved by Wednesday, November 22.
