Port Partners with Historical Museum on Major Exhibit
The Port of Vancouver USA is pleased to be a primary sponsor of the exhibit Currents of Progress: Clark County Rivers, Roads and Ports currently open at the Clark County Historical Museum. A year in the making, the exhibit is an educational exploration of Clark County’s river, roads and ports.
By using interpretive panels, historical objects, and interactive stations, visitors will discover and engage with the history and future of these important facilities and systems in Clark County and Southwest Washington.
Featured aspects of the exhibit include Native American Nations and their relationships with the waterways; Hudson’s Bay Company; early transportation; the establishment of the ports of Vancouver, Camas-Washougal and Ridgefield; the impact of World War I and II; and a look at Clark County ports today as well as future port projects.
“Working with the Clark County Historical Museum staff on this exhibit was a wonderful experience,” said Port of Vancouver Chief External Affairs Officer Ryan Hart. “CCHM staff was incredibly helpful, efficient and collaborative in planning for the interpretive panels and items on display. The result is an exhibit we are extremely proud of and are excited for museum visitors to see,” Hart added.
The exhibit will be open at the Clark County Historical Museum through 2023. More information about the museum, the exhibit, hours and admission can be found at www.cchmuseum.org.
