Willis Boatman: First the Trail, Then the War

September 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

In 1858, pioneer Willis Boatman built a hunting cabin on a plain near the lakes of south Pierce County. In the years following he added on to the structure, making it a suitable home for himself and wife Mary. New owners built it up still further over the years, resulting in the structure as it stands today—the oldest house in Lakewood.

There’s a lot more to Boatman’s story as an emigrant over the Oregon Trail and participant in the Indian Wars of the 1850’s. Come hear it and see him portrayed by living historian Ray Egan at our FREE presentation.
