Old mill site in Clatskanie Oregon

I had a great visit to the Clatskanie museum. Upon asking about local historic places, I was told about an old mill site east of town that still had the burner standing. Once common in the northwest, there are not many of these left.

While shooting, the towns Mayor came by and gave me a rundown on the history. The original mill had burned, and later the landowner had donated the land to the city. It’s a beautiful wetland area with sloughs that were dug for log rafts.
