Join Resident Historian Doug Kenck-Crispin at Art Market PDX (1125 SE Grand Ave) at 7:00pm on Tuesday 6/26 for an evening of the talking of the history. The topic will be The Great Flood of 1894, and the June that the Willamette rose to its highest level in recorded history. AND to go along with the talk will be a huge pile of Old Timey photos (circa 1894, to be precise) of the said flood, projected on the screen! We'll get a chance to examine some historic streets and legendary buildings - a few that are still standing, engulfed and inundated with the Willy's waters. A classic show for a historic anniversary! Art Market PDX is a gallery space that hosts DKC's monthly programming. So come on down for the art and stay for the history! BYOB and beers available by donation. The AC will be running! Doors at 6:00pm, History Show at 7:00pm - just $5!Find out more »

120 years ago this year, this ship became famous for its unprecedented 15,737 mi. cruise from San Francisco, through the Strait of Magellan at the bottom of South America, and then up to the coast of Florida in just 66 days. The Oregon then fought in the Spanish-American War in Cuba and earned the title “Bulldog of the Navy.” In the 1920s, Oregon schoolchildren pitched in dimes to purchase the Oregon for a museum of the aged conflict. But with the arrival of World War Two, the battleship was sold for scrap metal, and was nearly drafted as a South Pacific garbage scow. Come hear Resident Historian Doug Kenck-Crispin tell the story of this amazing ship which has always been associated with the pride of the Beaver State! Lots of illustrative photos of the ship to see and even a film clip from 1898.Find out more »
