SEASIDE — The history of Clatsop County can’t be told without mentioning the blood, sweat and sawdust of the Oregon logger and mills.

At 6 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 28, Seaside Museum’s History & Hops presents author Jim Aalberg at Seaside Brewing Co. as he shares stories from his book, “Historical Company Towns of Clatsop County.” Aalberg describes how the people connected to Bradwood, Wauna and Westport remember an almost idyllic existence — one filled with hard work but also with a deep sense of community.

Aalberg, a retired senior executive for the Kroger Co., is an amateur historian and writer as well as a fourth-generation Oregonian and the great-great-great-grandson of Westport’s founder, Captain John West.

History & Hops is a series of local history discussions hosted by the Seaside Museum on the last Thursday of each month, September through May, at Seaside Brewing Co., 851 Broadway St.
