    • October 06, 2016
    • 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
    • Coos History Museum


    The eight local history museums that are supporting local Ballot Measure 6-153 (Coos County Historical Fund) invite the public to attend a free event at the Coos History Museum (1210 N. Front St., Coos Bay) on Thursday, October 6th starting at 6:30 pm. 

    Several representatives from local history museums will make a short presentation about the ballot measure in the main community room after which attendees may view the Coos History Museum exhibits with no admission charge.  Those who attend the presentation can also join a tour “behind the exhibits” by visiting rooms normally not open to the public where exhibit prep and other museum operations take place. Light refreshments will be served.

    Ballot Measure 6-153 would establish secure funding for eight history museums in Powers, Bandon, Myrtle Point, Coquille, and Coos Bay by collecting a property tax based on ten cents per thousand assessed value. Supporters view the measure as a potential economic boost to the region as well as an important component of local education, culture, and pride. Coos County residents would be able to attend any of these museums free of charge if the measure passes.
