In March 1867 George Nurse moved from Fort Klamath to the banks of the    Link River where it flows into Lake Ewauna. There he started a trading post  and a ferry service. He named his new settlement Linkville which was later  renamed Klamath Falls. This is the 150th anniversery of that historic event.
