Oregon Historical Society says
Final showing of the year; first in Portland!
$9 adult, $7 students & seniors / Free for OHS Member

Join us for a glass lantern slide show celebrating the 100 year anniversary of the building of the Columbia River Highway. Modeled after the great scenic highways in Europe, the Columbia River Highway was officially dedicated in 1916 at two ceremonies 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 using a 1940 Bausch & Lomb projector – OHS Archivist Matthew Cowan and narrator Doug Kenck-Crispin (orhistory.com) will take a closer look at one of the greatest roadway projects of modern times.
