Gales Peak Lumber Company, Forest Grove

Title

Gales Peak Lumber Company, Forest Grove

Description

Gales Peak Lumber Company, destroyed by fire, was located south of Forest Grove. The B Street Trail is the old SP Railroad grade and ran along the back-side of the mill. The business side of the mill faced the east side of Nehalem Highway/B Street and the property ended at the intersection of B Street and Stringtown Road. The railroad did not serve the mill as all lumber was trucked from the mill. This picture was taken close to the middle of the mill operation looking north toward Forest Grove. A burner can be seen on the left and a furnace that provided steam for some of the mill's operation is on the far right.
