Event Type

This exhibition features photographs, objects and stories surrounding many of the fires that shaped and changed our communities. It includes the Nahcotta fire in 1915, the Ilwaco High School fire of 1936, the Keystone Cannery fire, Sid’s Market fire in the 1960s and more recently the 2006 fire that swept through the Ilwaco Fire Hall. Throughout all these disasters, the members of our mostly volunteer fire departments reacted quickly and successfully. The show will be on view until March 2022. The Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum is open Wednesday – Saturday 10-4 pm and is currently offering free admission.
