You don’t have to attend all of the Cannon Beach Cottage Tour events, but the luncheon and lecture is definitely a highlight. Who wouldn’t want to have a delectable lunch prepared by Dough Dough Bakery, while you talk history and cottages? Seating for this event is very limited, so purchase your tickets right away. Tickets for this event are $30 and help support Cannon Beach’s only museum – The Cannon Beach History Center & Museum.
The luncheon and lecture will take place at the Tolovana Hall located at 3779 S Hemlock St, Tolovana Park, OR 97145. The Tolovana Arts Colony has graciously donated the use of their beautiful hall for the luncheon and lecture.
We’ll open the doors at 11:30 a.m. so that attendees have time to get food, sit down and relax before the presentation begins at noon. Food will be prepared by Dough Dough Bakery – Oregon coast’s premiere caterer and bakery. The lecture portion of this event will be a presentation by the Oregonian’s own Janet Eastman. Eastman has traveled the world covering design shows and interviewing the most famous architects, interior designers and product designers, while on staff for 20 years at the Los Angeles Times and for the last six years at The Oregonian. But her favorite subject remains people and the inventive ways they make their home their own.
She has written for national magazines and design websites, and worked with architect-to-the-stars Richard Landry to write his monograph “Private Estates,” showcasing the mansions he’s designed for super models, studio moguls and sports stars. Still, what truly interests Janet are real people in real homes.
She splits her time between Portland and Ashland, Oregon, where the downtown speed limit is 20 mph — slow enough to notice the smallest architectural details. She has a master’s in English, with an emphasis in Rhetoric and Composition.
We are so excited to welcome Janet Eastman as our keynote speaker. Eastman will be talking about and asking questions about the evolution of the Cannon Beach cottage, the history, the design, and how things are changing.
The luncheon and lecture will wrap up at 1:00 p.m. Those who are attending the tour of homes after the luncheon and lecture will be able to pick up their maps at this event. We will have a check in booth at the front door to make life easier!
This event is part of the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum’s Cottage Tour series of events. The Cottage Tour is the museum’s only annual fundraiser and provides 20% of the annual budget. The museum is a private non-profit 501 (c) 3. The Cannon Beach Museum believes history should be available to all, no matter financial status, so we are donation based. This event allows us to keep our doors open – as well as offer a free lecture series and field trip program, season exhibits, and more.
Tickets are available to purchase at the museum, over the phone (503-436-9301), or through the online gift shop.
