Quench your thirst for knowledge with the Washington County Historical Society!

Born in Boonsboro, Maryland on March 13th, 1937, Douglas Garns Bast was an exceptional person, and a prominent collector of rare antiquities. Commonly called Doug – or Dougie if you knew him well enough – Doug was something of a local legend. On Friday, January 14th, join us in welcoming Steve for an exploration into the life, collection, and legacy of Doug Bast, who passed away in March 2021 after a battle with Parkinson’s.

The featured cocktail will be: The Irish Coffee! Containing hot coffee, Irish whiskey, maple syrup, and whipped cream, this is the perfect winter cocktail!
