June 9, 2021  2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

June 9, 2021 marks 49 years since the 1972 Black Hills Flood. The Journey Museum and Learning Center will never forget this tragic moment in history.

Corey Christianson delivers a program covering the events leading up to the flood and the consequences that followed. The program includes a traditional historical review of key people with a focus on understanding the "Greenway" and the flood plain. To learn more about the flood, click here.

This program is presented at no charge, and a recording of the program will be available to the public. Click here to register for the program on Zoom or join us at the museum. Museum seating is limited to 60 people. Save your spot by calling 605-394-6923 during business hours.

experience, working in museums all over the state of South Dakota.

As a Coast Guard brat, Corey has moved 11 times but claims Wisconsin as home. She received her undergraduate degree in history and English from the University of South Dakota. She went on to get her master’s degree with an emphasis in museum studies from the University of Oklahoma.
