History and the Loch Ness monster

A few years ago I visited Loch Ness in Scotland. Yes, I wanted to see Nessie. In fact, I had kind of hoped there might actually be a Loch Ness monster.

But in Loch Ness, I learned that the people who said they’d seen the Loch Ness monster had many years ago admitted it was just an elaborate hoax.

So what does the Loch Ness monster have to do with Columbia historic homes?

At 2 p.m. on Tuesday, June 19 at the Columbia Public Library I’ll be giving a presentation busting some the myths about Columbia’s historic homes and revealing some of Columbia’s hidden history. I’ll also show how I found the information and will offer a resource sheet in case you want to do your own detective work.

What myths would you like investigated? What kinds of hidden history are you interested in? I’m still working on setting up my presentation so there’s still time to weigh in.
