La Conner history book launched at museum
December 14, 2022
Few people knew La Conner history as well as the late Thomas Robinson. Thanks to his exhaustive research and the editing magic of Carl Molesworth, the town's early development is between a book's covers.
Robinson's voluminous manuscript, "Steamboat Town," which Molesworth, John Kamb, Jr. and other members of the Skagit County Historical Society's publications committee have pored over for about a decade, was launched in book form last Thursday.
Kamb moderated the informal evening program at the Skagit County Historical Museum, where copies of the book are available for purchase.
