Fairhaven Spanish Goblet

Posted on October 30, 2009
The Legend or fact?  In the 1500's Spanish explorer Juan De Fuca came to Bellingham Bay landed at The Fairhaven Harbor and engaged in a 3 day battle with local First Nation Tribes ( Lummi, Nooksac or Samish tribes all could have been there) during said battle, a Spanish Goblet was left behind, years later to be found by Fairhaven residences in the 1800s along the North Bank of Padden creek ( now a park trail on Land donated by the Spirit Foundation), in the heart of the Fairhaven District.  I invite comments as to the truth of this legend.

I can't verify the above coment but I do find it very interesting and may be completly or partialy true Ther3e was much exageration back then. ( unfortunatly still true today0> What I do know is the Spiriit Foundation did donate this property to Bellingham Parks because I was the Chairman of the Board for this Philanthrophic foundation
