Heritage Park - Flood Pole
Heritage Park Flood Pole Installed
Larry Shad's dream is finally a reality.
On Thursday April 11, 2019, the longtime vision of Mr. Larry Shad, past President of the Coleraine Historical Society and retired surveyor, came to fruition with the installation
of a flood pole and informational sign.
Official Dedication was held on Wednesday, July 10, 2019.
The Flood Pole marks how high the water levels got in two of our biggest floods in modern history – 1913 and 1959
Mr. Shad saved the height levels from their marks on the old Wilhelm Farm Barn before it was destroyed by fire. Mr. Shad surveyed the markings and has been working for years to secure the donations to install this historical marker.
Heritage Park is on the site of the former Wilhelm Farm.
