Adapted from the Summer 2014 exhibition, "Clink! A Taste of Oregon Wine," the Oregon Historical Society has developed a traveling version of the exhibition which includes twelve colorful banners with photographs and text illustrating the history of the flourishing Oregon wine industry. Two iPads with stands provide digital interactive experiences to complement the graphics. Visitors may scroll through and view wine-related objects dating to the nineteenth century or explore a map of the major winegrowing areas of Oregon to learn about typical wine varietals grown in each part of the state. This travelling exhibit is available for rental to historical societies and other groups in 2015.

During its short life span (1942-1948) Vanport—Oregon’s second largest city and the nation’s largest public housing project—drew national attention and conflicting opinions. When the Columbia River flooded on May 31 of 1948, Memorial Day, the entire city was erased from the map and from much of Portland’s memory in a single day. Come explore the enduring impact of this chapter in Oregon’s history.
