Clark County History 2008

This particular issue caught my interest as it offers a nicely written article about Jantzen Beach, "The Diving Girl and The Big Dipper". It is my understanding this book is published yearly and covers various historical themes of the Vancouver, WA area. According to the book, "Clark County History began publication in 1960 as an annual project of the Fort Vancouver Historical Society. In 2001, publication was suspended temporarily while the Fort Vancouver Historical Society restructed itself as the Clark County Historical Society and Museum. Publication resumed in 2004 under the auspices of the new organization."

Copies of this edition and back issues are on sale at the Clark County Historical Museum, 1511 Main Street, Vancouver, WA, Washington 98660
