Join the Whatcom County Historical Society for a presentation about Fairhaven’s development history. In a lovely corner of Bellingham Washington stands the former Town of Fairhaven. Its growth pattern over the last 164 years has been to grow with booms and fade with busts. But, why? City of Bellingham urban planner Jackie Lynch will outline the history of at least six boom cycles in the Fairhaven area, and tie this history to changes to the State’s and the Nation’s economy. How much of Fairhaven’s appearance is based on the great tsunamis of history and the economy? And, what can we learn about these changes from Fairhaven’s buildings? This fast-moving presentation’s goal is to provide people interested in Fairhaven and local history with the greater stories told by wood, brick, and mortar.
