A wall of fire four and a half miles high.

Small sparks led to one of the biggest natural disasters in history.
We tell the story of those who died, those who survived,
and the power of the firestorm.

We are closed for the season and will re-open on May 1, 2018.

First there was the timber. Then came
 the people to harvest the trees and the
 railroads to supply them.
On September 1st, 1894,
in just a matter of hours,
history was changed forever.
