New Year's Flood of 1934

Monday, January 19th, 7PM

At Midnight on New Years Eve of 1934, the Crescenta Valley was hit with a flash flood of huge proportions that drew international attention. The flood destroyed hundreds of homes and killed and injured scores. It was the single most important historic event in our local history, and permanently changed the valley.

Historian Art Cobery has made the study of this geologic event his specialty, and has given hundreds of lectures on this subject. He gives many dramatic first hand accounts of tragedy and heroism during the flood, and will tell us about the massive flood control system in place today to hopefully prevent a reoccurrence of this disaster.

This is the American Legion Hall, where 12 people perished.
It was located at Rosemont and Fairway, near where the memorial plaque now stands.
