It is no secret that Redmond is experiencing tremendous growth and change. With transformation, it is easy to forget that “every town has a history” and none more so than Redmond whose namesake arrived in the area well over a hundred years ago at the mature age of 51 – an Irishman who’d already been a politician, sheriff, sea captain and lumber mill manager while living in Tennessee and California .
Presented by incoming Redmond Historical Society President Joe Townsend, “Redmond History 101: The First Fifty Years” will kick off the Society’s Saturday Speaker Series for spring 2015. The program will be held from 10.30-noon on January 10th at the Old Redmond Schoolhouse Community Center and will be of interest to newcomers and longtime residents alike.
