Join us for our last event of the year, the annual tribute to the Lewis & Clark Expedition. We’ll be serving up ‘Hot Cider & History’ as we remember William Clark’s journal entry, November 22, 1805 [original spelling & grammar]:

“O! how horriable is the day— This Storm Continued all day with equal violence accompanied with rain, Several Indians about us, nothing killed the waves & brakers flew over our Camp, one Canoe Split by the Tossing of those waves— we are all Confined to our Camp and wet.”

This was a momentous part of the journey as the Corps of Discovery neared their goal. They canoed past our site and camped about a mile downriver. Enjoy the river view, rain or shine, with a hot cup of cider as we commemorate history where it happened!
