Architectural Heritage Center says
Please join us as AHC volunteer Norm Gholston and BMF/AHC board member Dr. Tracy J. Prince discuss the origins of Slabtown. The program will cover the earliest days of white settlement through the reconfiguration of the landscape to make room for the 1905 Lewis and Clark Exposition, to the arrival of the mail order giant Montgomery Ward, and forward through the war years and beyond. You’ll learn about the diverse immigrant populations that lived and worked in Slabtown, the buildings (like Vaughn Street Baseball Park) that were or are still community landmarks, and how freeway construction in the 1960s and 1970s tore the neighborhood apart.
