James Cameron’s 1997 Oscar-winning movie Titanic was centered on the love story of two young people on board.  And while many people are familiar with that fictional tale of love and loss, few have heard the real Titanic love story that began in Forest Grove and ended tragically in the icy waters of the Atlantic. Historian Lisa Casten shares the survivor’s eye-witness account, presented with historical photographs.  

Lisa Casten has been a member of Friends of Historic Forest Grove (FHFG) since 2006 and served as editor of FHFG’s quarterly newsletter, The Friend-ly Gazette, for over 11 yearsLisa also co-authored Arcadia Publishing’s “Images of America” book, Forest Grove, with fellow FHFG member and local historian Mary Jo Morelli.
