Historic Hood River
Posts of Post Canyon
Tomorrow evening I’ll be giving a short talk entitled “The Posts of Post Canyon” as part of the fourth annual “Rooted” storytelling event. My brief story will give you a little insight into what was going on up in Post Canyon over a hundred years ago. Logging, fires, and the passage of time have left virtually no physical trace of the people who called Post Canyon “home” in that era. Fortunately we have plenty of photographs, newspaper accounts and property records to fill in some details.
Advance tickets are recommended as this event usually sells out. Also, a reminder some of the storytellers will be addressing adult themes, so this is not recommended for children. Details and tickets can be found at the Columbia Center For the Arts website.
That’s Jack Binns in the middle holding the monkey wrench. He’s one of the denizens of Post Canyon I’ll be talking about. His name lives on with “Binns Hill” a popular location within the county forest.
