1959 Hebgen Lake Earthquake 60th Anniversary Events

August 16th, 2019|

This year marks the 60th Anniversary of the Hebgen Lake Earthquake. The Hebgen Lake Earthquake occurred in the dead of night on August 17, 1959. The earthquake measured 7.5 (later adjusted to 7.3) on the Richter scale and triggered a landslide that brought 80 million tons of rock hurdling down into the Madison River canyon at 100 miles per hour, killing 28 people who were camping nearby. The geologic event blocked the Madison River in less than a minute and formed what is now known as Earthquake (Quake) Lake. This event continues to impact the West Yellowstone, Montana area and the surrounding region. Join us for events commemorating the anniversary throughout the month of August. All events will be at the Earthquake Lake Visitor Center unless otherwise noted. The visitor center is located approximately 25 miles northwest of West Yellowstone. From West Yellowstone, head north on Highway 191 for 8 miles. Turn left onto Highway 287 at the junction. Continue on Highway 287 for 17 miles until you reach the visitor center on your right. On August 3 and August [...]
