About The Dam Fiasco at Bull Flat: A look back at the 1913-1914 Tumalo Project

One hundred years ago, land speculation and investment around Tumalo and Bull Flat were fueled by the promise of a dam and a new Tumalo Reservoir. The fiasco that followed cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, damaged reputations, and dashed dreams.

Join Mike Berry for a history of what went wrong and how it shaped the development of Central Oregon.
