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.

On a very warm evening,

July 10, 2019 people gathered at Heritage Park to see the unveiling of the informative sign and official dedication of 

the Flood Pole at Heritage Park.
