SEASIDE — Oregon’s traveling historian, Darrell Jabin, will share his film “Rail History of Oregon: It Changed Everything” and discuss the impact of Oregon’s trains, streetcars and trolleys on Oregon history at the Seaside Museum’s next History & Hops event.

The event takes place 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, at the Seaside Brewing Co., 851 Broadway St.

Some say Ben Holladay built Seaside House so he could cash in on the visitors coming to the beach, mainly by train. Others say Holladay worked to get train access to the beach so he would have customers for his resort. Though train access to Seaside ceased in 1952, Holladay, Seaside and trains are forever connected.
