Aerial photograph of Gales Peak Lumber Company. Gales Peak Lumber Company was located south of town. The B Street Trail is the old SP Railroad grade and ran along the back-side of the mill. The front, or 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. Gales Peak Lumber Company burnt to the ground around 1959. Mr. F. E. (Fred) Voget was owner of Gales Peak Lumber Company during the time this picture was taken.
