Monthly Event Hosted by the Historic West Bottoms
March 18, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Come celebrate with us, the Centennial of the Twelfth Street Trafficway Viaduct!
Our meeting will be hosted by Historic West Bottoms (formerly Central Industrial District Association) at the event space in the Rumely Tractor Building owned by Fullmoon Productions. Historic West Bottoms feels it fitting to celebrate the Twelfth Street Trafficway Viaduct’s Centennial for the structure’s significance as an engineering feat, and its commercial importance to the development of the West Bottoms… and we are glad to be a part of it!
