  Images of America Crater Lake National Park

For more than half a million years, volcano Mount Mazama towered over southern Oregon. From time to time, it erupted, spreading pumice, ash, and cinders for miles around. Then, approximately 7,700 years ago, Mount Mazama erupted with such force that the volcano could no longer support itself and it collapsed, leaving a large caldera. Eventually, the volcanic action subsided and all was calm. Over the next centuries, water and snow accumulated in the caldera. In 1902, Crate Lake became a national park. Historian and author Margaret LaPlante has given us a chance to step back in time and experience Crate Lake from the 1850s to the 1950s. All of the historic images in the book appear courtesy of the Crater Lake National Park Museum and Archive Collections. LaPlante previously authored tow Oregon books, Jacksonville and Eagle Point, in Arcadias Publishing's Images of America series. The images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. Using archival photographs, each title presents the distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of the community today. Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all.
