BAYFIELD FLOOD OF 1942
The Bayfield Flood of ‘42 Exhibit depicts – through the lens of the camera, front page newspaper accounts, and personal accounts given over the years – the largest and most devastating flood event in Bayfield’s history.
This exhibit presents scenes evocative of life on Sand Island, a documentary in the words and photographs of Sand Islanders, and a reference library of their diaries and stories. Life on Sand Island is lived without electricity or running water in the 21st century just as it was when Frank Shaw settled there in 1870.
