Dinty's Station at Biggs OR

1915 the Keenans resided in Biggs Oregon.

Bernard and Lydia built or had built, "Dinty's Station", for Ritta and Dinty to provide a job and income for them. The Station was built on the Columbia River Highway east of The Dalles, at the Junction going south to Moro and Grass Valley. The Station was on part of their homestead property, the house and buildings to the south were destroyed when the bridge across the Columbia was built and a wide straight highway was built to the south. Eventually uncle Alvin inherited the station, and the rental of it provided for him for his lifetime. Long before the new highway the Keenan's had moved to lower Biggs, down near the depot and the hotel, this area is under water ... now that we have The Dalles Dam, which also wiped out the famous Celilo Falls and Indian Village.
