"The Settling of the Mendenhall Valley" to be the focus of Saturday talk

Local historian, researcher and speaker Jim Geraghty will share his research into the people and events that shaped the settling of the Mendenhall Valley at the Juneau-Douglas City Museum’s Coffee & Collections presentation Saturday, Dec. 14, from 10:30 a.m.-12 noon.
