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. This traveling exhibit is currently available for rental to historical societies and other groups.

On Memorial Day in 1948, the Columbia River, swirling fifteen feet above normal, punched a hole in a railroad embankment that served as a dike, starting a flood that would leave 18,000 people homeless and alter race relations in Portland forever. This exhibit of four interpretive panels tells the story of what was once the second-largest city in Oregon.
