Event Description

When the Government Locks (aka Hiram Chittenden Locks or Ballard Locks) were cut through in 1916, and the ship canal between Lake Union and Lake Washington was completed, the water in Lake Washington cascaded into Lake Union leaving its main drainage, the Black River, without a flow, and permanently baring shoreline that had never seen the light of day. Come and see amazing photos documenting this era in Lake Forest Park, one of the communities most affected by this event.
