Join us at CCHM on May 4, 2017, at 7:00 pm for a discussion of Vanport with local author Zita Podany. Nestled in the floodplain between North Portland, Oregon, and Vancouver, Washington, a housing project was built to help house World War II shipyard workers.It was a city with many firsts. It was a city that touched many lives in a very short period of time. On May 30, 1948, it was a city that disappeared just as quickly as it came into existence, leaving a legacy that will not soon be forgotten. Zita Podany is a longtime resident of Portland and has for many years been fascinated with the story of a city that once thrived in an area full of marshes and sloughs. This lecture is part of our monthly First Thursday Museum After Hours Series. Continue reading
