March 15 – November 15, 2016

In celebration of the 2016 centennial of the Columbia River Highway, the Sam Hill Room will host a temporary exhibition of black and white prints showing both construction photos of the highway and early scenic views of the Columbia River Gorge. Most of the images are drawn from Sam Hill’s personal photo collection, which is housed at Maryhill Museum of Art.
