Join the Whatcom County Historical Society as they return to in-person programs in the Rotunda Room of Old City Hall. Local author Mike Impero will talk about Bellingham Bay and British Columbia Railroad, which ran between the town of Whatcom (now Bellingham) and Sumas, to connect with the Canadian Pacific Railway for a continental connection in the late 1800s. Impero is the author of multiple local history books including Dreams of Gold: History of the Mount Baker Mining District and The Boys of Glacier.
