HISTORICAL REENACTMENT: GEORGIANA PITTOCK, HER LAST TEN YEARS

The Friends of the Seaside Public Library present the dramatic presentation of “Georgiana Pittock, Her Last Ten Years" with actress Mary Hutchins.

Mary Hutchens (portraying Mrs. Pittock) and Mike Hutchen’s (portraying her chauffeur) recount the scintillating tale of Georgiana and Henry Pittock as they came west on the Oregon Trail, and their subsequent settlement in Portland.  The Pittock family played a major role in the history of Portland and the growth of our largest city. 

They will also tell the story of the Pittock’s last ten years between 1908-1918, with the building of the Pittock Mansion, the evolution of Women’s Voting Rights in Oregon, World War I, and dealing with the effects of a stroke. 

The Pittock family visited Seaside on many occasions and the presentation will touch on their experiences on the Oregon Coast. 

Historical actress, Mary Hutchens, has been portraying Georgiana Pittock since 2007, and has told her story to school children, residents of elder living facilities, museums, libraries, civic, and philanthropic organizations. 

She will be in full period costume for the presentation.

Admission is free!
