The Cove in Seaside is a popular local surfing paradise and is a habitat for a wide variety of precious marine life. Its most popular and mysterious landmark is the sailors’ gravesite seen by all who make their way to the Cove. There are many stories regarding those for whom Sailors’ Grave is — or may be — a final resting place. Robin and Bill Montero will share their research and discovery of the possible and probable grave residents in their presentation “Known Only To God: The Mystery of Sailors’ Grave” at History and Hops at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 22, at Seaside Brewing Co.

When Robin and Bill Montero purchased their home across the street from Sailors’ Grave, they became interested in knowing more about the landmark. As they joined their neighbors in caring for the site, they researched its history which culminated in the city erecting a historical marker based on the information they discovered.

History and Hops is a series of local history discussions hosted by the Seaside Museum on the last Thursday of each month, September through May, at Seaside Brewing Co., 861 Broadway.
