Library Hosts Lewis, Clark Historical Traveling Exhibit

Washington State Historical Society show comes to White Salmon through March 27

The White Salmon Valley Community Library will host "End of Our Voyage," a Washington State Historical Society exhibit about the Lewis & Clark Expedition in Washington, through March 27.

The exhibit coincides with the 200-year anniversary of the beginning of the Lewis and Clark Expedition in St. Louis, Mo., a "voyage of discovery" that took the explorers and their party halfway across the continent.

The traveling exhibit features rarely seen historical photographs, maps and excerpts from the diaries of the two most famous explorers in American history.

The museum-quality panels tell the story of the expedition's journey through Washington, with first-person accounts and maps showing detailed routes and campsites at familiar landmarks.

This tour of the museum exhibit around the state marks the first time it has been displayed outside the State Historical Society building in Tacoma.

In conjunction with the exhibit "Music of the Lewis & Clark Expedition" with musicians Connie and Rich Dunnington will be presented at the library on March 21 at 7 p.m.

The exhibit and music program are free and open to the public.
