The Flood of 1942 in Bayfield.

Starting this weekend at the Heritage Center in Bayfield some interesting history. History of a huge event that took place during the summer of 1942. A huge rainstorm which caused a flood that washed out parts of Bayfield and did much damage. I have collected some postcards from this event which are posted on the website:

I visited the Heritage Center after the Open House. I was very impressed by the volunteer host that was on duty. He was extremely knowledgeable and gave us a fine tour of the flood photographs and locations of the many damaged buildings. It is often hard to pinpoint where the buildings are in those old photographs. He was very helpful.
