The Great Flood of 1894 Portland Walking Tour
June 3, 2017 @ 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Hope you can join us for our annual Great Flood of 1894 Walking Tour!
June 2017 is the 123rd anniversary of The Great Flood of 1894, which saw the Willamette River reach its record height at 33 feet. Kick Ass Oregon History’s Doug Kenck-Crispin will host his annual Great Flood Field Trip; visiting the sites, bringing along the old photographs, and talking all about it!
We will position ourselves RIGHT where the original photo was taken, and look at the changes that have occurred over the last 123 years. And, of course, talk about that Great Flood of Biblical proportions, and the effect those waters had on Portland. More details and tickets are available right HERE. A podcast about the subject can be found right HERE.
