Wilsonville Library Adult Events

  1. San Francisco 1906 lecture

    April 18, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ Oak Room

    In 1906, San Francisco was the leading city in the Western United States. All that changed at 5:12 AM April 18, 1906 when a magnitude 8 earthquake struck without warning. This historic event holds lessons for the Pacific Northwest as we prepare for a Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake.

A display and question/answer session are included in the one-hour presentation.
