KNAPPTON COVE — Visit the Historic U.S. Quarantine Station in Knappton Cove for the annual tribute to the Lewis & Clark Expedition, “O, How Horriable is the Day,” in conjunction with Hometown Tourism Day, 1 to 4 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 10.

As the program remembers the “horriable” weather as noted by the Corps of Discovery in 1805, we also remember the horrors of the 1918 flu pandemic.

At 2 p.m. we present the program “100 Years Ago: Remembering the 1918 Flu Pandemic.” Right out of the time machine, Dr. Jay Tuttle, who was in command of the Columbia River Quarantine Station in 1918, will tell us what’s happening on the Public Health front. Hot cider will be served.

The Quarantine Station is three miles upriver from the Astoria Bridge on Washington State Route 401.

Admission is free, though donations are welcome. For more information, visit or find us on Facebook.
