“A Road Suited to the Times”: The Columbia River Highway at 100 – Bend
April 8, 2016 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PMFREE
A program celebrating the 100 year anniversary of the building of the Columbia River Highway. Modeled after the great scenic highways in Europe, in 1916 two dedication ceremonies took place commemorating the completion of the highway between Hood River and Portland. Using original hand colored lantern slides from the John Yeon Slide collection at the Oregon Historical Society – projected by Matthew Cowan using a 1940 Bausch & Lomb projector – we take a closer look at one of the greatest roadway projects of modern times. This program – including original narration – was produced in partnership with Doug Kenck-Crispin of Kick Ass Oregon History. More details HERE.
