Days of Disaster: The Douglas Starch Works Explosion

The History Center commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Douglas Starch Works Explosion, an event with repercussions for the entirety of Linn County – including the workers at the plant, local residents, business owners , and beyond.

The exhibit explores the disaster itself as well as the days immediately following. It’s a story of tragedy and resilience – and it’s a story of community coming together at a moment that could have sown division.

 

The History Center is open Tuesday – Saturday, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM. You can find more information about this exhibit, and our other exhibits at https://www.historycenter.org/current-exhibit .
