From the wreck of the Desdemona in 1857, to the tavern that opened in 1934, the name, Desdemona, has a special resonance for people of Astoria. This presentation explores the connections between the ship, a large sand bar, a lighthouse, and a tavern all name​d​ after Desdemona. Local historians Eric Wheeler and Lauri Serafin might raise more questions than answers in this well researched, but light hearted presentation.
