Details

The photographer's title "Logging Near Bridal Veil" probably refers to the Columbia Gorge logging town of Bridal Veil, rather than the waterfall. The town was established in 1886 to mine the timber resources of Larch Mountain. The logging town of Palmer was built one- and one-half-miles uphill, and a wooden V-shaped flume floated rough cut timber down the mountain to the planning mill at the railroad tracks at Bridal Veil. In 1990, the Trust for Public Land acquired Bridal Veil and its buildings. Despite a ten-year fight from the Crown Point Country Historical Society to preserve the mill houses and buildings, the trust had them demolished in 2001. The town now consists of a church, a tiny post office and a cemetery. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
