Event description

Description

Produced by Nadine Jelsing, this OPB documentary tells the story of the creation of the city, its time as housing for the WWII shipbuilding industry, its postwar community, and its destruction by flooding from the Columbia River in 1948.

Saturday, May 27, 2017 10am
PCC Moriaty Building Auditorium

Tickets are FREE, but seating is limited and RSVP is strongly recommended.


This event is part of the Vanport Mosaic Festival 2017, a four-day exploration of the history and legacy of Vanport, Oregon’s second largest city wiped out by a flood in 1948. Through theater, documentaries, historic exhibit, lectures, and tours we honor the experience of those who lived there.
