AMBOY – The North Clark Historical Museum will be the site of an upcoming exhibit featuring the Yacolt Burn and Smokey Bear.
North Clark Historical Museum is in upper Amboy at 21416 NE 399th St. in the renovated 1910 United Brethren Church. The Museum incorporated in 1988 and opened to the public in June of 2000.
The Yacolt Burn in September of 1902 was the largest recorded fire in the state of Washington until 2014, when the Carlton Complex fire in Okanogan County became the largest. The raging inferno lasted for three days from Sept. 11-13. Day turned into night, ashes and pine needles fell from the sky, humans and animals fled, and the fire destroyed everything in its path.
The exhibit will be available for viewing Sat., Sept. 24. The program at 2 p.m. will highlight the history of the fire, stories from the pioneers, Smokey Bear, and how fire impacted the local area.
The museum is wheelchair accessible and has air conditioning. Admission is free. Donations are welcome.
Quilt raffle tickets will be available for “Wild Flowers,” a beautiful quilt made by the Chelatchie Quilters. Tickets are $1 each. This is our annual fundraiser, and proceeds will go to the Capital Improvement Fund.
