Dayton celebrates 100th anniversary of 1913 flood

With the week of March 26 marking the 100th anniversary of the 1913 flood, McPherson Town residents have been reflecting on what those who lived in our homes might have gone through in those frightening days. Most of the homes in our little neighborhood were submerged in cold rushing water over 14 feet deep. It is amazing that so many of those wood structures weathered the flood and the 100 years since then! We thank all those who have gone before us for their heroism and efforts. We wouldn’t be here today without them.
