Oregon Experiences's Vanport Premiering November 14
Oregon Experience's 11th season will premiere with the story of Vanport. During the early 1940s, Vanport, Oregon was the second largest city in the state. But on a Sunday afternoon in May 1948, it disappeared completely - destroyed by a catastrophic flood. This is the story of what it was like to live here, how it suddenly ended and how it changed the face of Portland.
