Explore the history of Timberline Lodge
Seventy-five years ago, in the throes of the Great Depression, Timberline Lodge was constructed high on the south slopes of Mt. Hood through President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration (WPA). The lodge provided work for hundreds of Oregonian laborers, craftsmen, and artisans. Today, Timberline has a firm respect for its tradition, yet a forward leaning sense of innovation. Learn about the lodge’s historical significance has how it has been preserved as it continues to offer recreation for twenty-first-century visitors.
Join the Columbia Gorge Earth Center on Tuesday, Dec. 18, at Springhouse Cellar in welcoming Timberline’s director of public affairs Jon Tullis to share the history of this Oregon landmark. Doors open at 6 p.m.
