It would seem it doesn't like my posting URLs. You'll have to cut and paste 'em I suppose.

Not a problem. I just happened to stumble on it and knew I'd read some stuff about it just recently because I had been over that way. Now back to finding an apartment for my g/f.

How funny to find this thread. My grandmother was telling me yesterday about my Grampa and how he and his buddies flooded the town of Flagstaff. My Grampa passed away a year ago so my grandmother tells me stories often about their youth.

I had never heard of this flood in Flagstaff and I told her I would look it up. How neat that my Grampa was a key player in such an historical event.

There was also a small settlement near Fort Fairfield that was flooded when they put in Tinker Dam, but that was no more than a wide spot in the road anyway. The road still goes right down into the water.

In NH the town of Hill near Franklin decided, after repeatedly flooding, to pick up and move and the old town, many buildings and all, was moved up the "hill" and the original town abandoned. Hill - Ghost Town I guess they didnt flood the town.....they just got tired of being flooded.

I thought flooding towns was a Texas thing [we have several flooded out towns here whan they dammed up rivers to make lakes that are now being rediscovered as this drought makes these lake levels drop more and more. Buildings and even cemetaries SOME with caskets showing. Always wondered why the water tasted so lousy.]
