Juana Rose Hernandez, left, and Richard Wilhelm look at the Vanport historical exhibit at the New Columbia Community Education Center on North Trenton Street. Wilhelm and filmmaker Sue Arbuthnot spent over three and half years documenting the deconstruction and reconstruction of Columbia Villa and New Columbia developments. Juana Rose lived in the old Columbia Villa, and attends Rose Parks Elementary school at New Columbia. Of note in the exhibit is the presence of the original Vanport housing numbers, which have been sanded down to their original cedar base and placed as the background wave in the exhibit.
