Curt Osterhoudt “Railroad History of Ventura County”
September 7 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Curt Osterhoudt, who has loved trains ever since childhood, became the Santa Susana Museum’s first volunteer in December 1998.
Not only did he like to visit the Santa Susana Train Depot and watch the progress that was being made in the railroad model room, but when plans to develop a museum were being discussed, he took notice.
He quickly got involved, and working closely with the late director, Tom Bergh, was instrumental in developing the Santa Susana Museum, where he currently curates exhibits, serves as the Saturday docent in charge, and schedules tours.
He is also an enthusiastic and accomplished speaker at both the museum as well as throughout the community. His areas of expertise include Corriganville and railroad history.
Curt, who served in the Army from 1967-1969, worked at AT&T from 1969 until his retirement in 1996. He married his high school sweetheart, Kathleen in 1970. They’ve been married for 49 years and have two sons and three grandchildren. When not volunteering his time at the depot, Curt also enjoys yoga and ping-pong.
