History series features schooner

Larry Lang will talk about the Hudson’s Bay Company schooner Cadboro at the Clallam County Historical Society’s History Tales lecture series at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 5, at the First United Methodist Church, 110 E. Seventh Street, Port Angeles.
The schooner facilitated the establishment of trade with native tribes in remote coastal areas that were otherwise inaccessible and was instrumental in the establishment of outposts that became the British Columbia cities of Victoria and Vancouver. The most tragic incident involving the Cadboro was the little-remembered destruction, by cannon fire, of the native village at New Dungeness in 1828. Ironically the schooner wrecked on the shore 10 miles from there in 1862.
