Railroad History Tour

September 8, 2018 @ 2:00 AM - 10:00 AM


On March 1, 1910, the deadliest avalanche in North American history swept down the snowy Cascades, burying two trains and killing 96 people. The Wenatchee Valley Museum is offering a guided tour of the Wellington site from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8. The tour also will visit several other sites between Leavenworth and Stevens Pass that played important roles in the history of the Great Northern Railway Company.

Tour goers will meet at the Wenatchee Valley Museum at 9 a.m. to board a tour bus. The bus will then will travel west on U.S. Highway 2, stopping for discussion at different points of interest. The final stop will be the interpretive site at Wellington, where participants will have lunch and take a half-mile walk around the area of the disaster.
