The historic Steamboat Inn, located on the banks of the famed North Umpqua River, was in the middle of the Archie Creek Fire that started on September 8th, 2020. The devastation from this mega fire to the area is astounding. While the Inn buildings survived, the three water systems and septic system did not; all four melted and are a complete loss. The Woodward Family purchased the Steamboat Inn in 2017 and since then have endured four natural disasters. While they have been able to weather each of these storms on their own and come back stronger, they are asking for our help now.
