“Fire & Water” Exhibit Now Open

Branson Main Street Flood

This photograph from April, 1927, shows the devastation of the flood of that year on Main Street (note missing span of bridge).

Branson Centennial Museum’s newest exhibit, “Fire and Water” is now open, and will run through mid-September.

One portion of the display, designed by members of the Branson Fire Department, focuses on fires in the Branson area, with vintage fire-fighting equipment and photographs, along with informational handouts. The remainder of the display pertains to the White River, including the building of Powersite and Table Rock Dams.

The original exhibit was created by members of the White River Valley Historical Society and the Branson Fire Department. The museum is a joint effort of the WRVHS, Branson Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Branson Main Street Association, and the City of Branson.
