King of Roads: 100 years of the Historic Columbia River Highway

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This is the story of the Historic Columbia River Highway (HCRH), the first modern roadway through the Columbia River Gorge and one of the first in the United States.


This preview of Laughing Deva Productions “King of Roads” elicits the original and on-going “scenic” vision of the men who built the highway as well as those who are currently involved in recreating the dream. Our intention is to tell the story with an underlying understanding that roads, cars, bikes, and transportation in general bring with them a certain freedom and harmony. This is a celebration of the freedom to go places, get things done, and explore the world in a new way that roads made possible. Our story not only tells of roads in the Gorge, but also draws the viewer’s attention to scenic wonders and the rebuilt HCRH as a premier recreation and tourism destination. The Columbia River Highway opened the way to the Sunday drive, the open road, and the ability to move products and people from their doorstep to their business. This movie is a celebration of that road and the car culture that made that possible.
