March: Exhibit on 1913 flood (link), West Lafayette Library. This small exhibit I located in the class display near the elevators. The exhibit features photos not on public display for many years, news paper clippings and a written paper on the devastating flood. The 1913 flood is still the highest recorded level at Lafayette. In comparison, the 2005 flood was 7’ less in Lafayette. The 2005 flood on the Wildcat did set a record.
Under the train overpass on US231 South is a block from the original overpass and marks the water level for the 1913 flood.
While at the library, check out the Hoosier landscape paintings in the upstairs meeting rooms.
