Your South Coast Adventure Starts Here

It’s Your Museum

The Coos History Museum creates a better understanding of life in Coos County and Oregon’s South Coast, past and present, and our place in that life.

Stories Behind the Names

After a one-year hiatus, the Coos History Museum's Steve Greif will host our winter class. This 8-week lecture series, “Stories Behind the Names: South Coast Geography”, will take place every Monday evening at 6:30 pm-7:30 pm from January 8th-February 26, 2024.

This program will be hosted in-person at the Coos History Museum with an admission price of $75 for CHM Members and $80 for the general public. All proceeds support the Coos History Museum’s Annual Fund.

Pre-registration is required as space is limited for this popular program. Reservations can be made by phone at 541-756-6320 or by registering in person at the museum’s front desk.

About our presenter: Steve Greif is a retired North Bend High School teacher that has written a history of North Bend High as well as a two-volume U.S. History text for students. He is a volunteer at the Coos History Museum and is extremely knowledgeable on local history topics.
