Hull-Oakes Lumber Mill Tour #2

Tuesday, August 25, 2015 - 11:30am to 6:30pm

This is a chance to see a lumber mill from the past. The mill, which was on tour at both 1987 Eugene and 1994 Portland Nationals, is over 50 years old and still retains a steam boiler and a steam engine that powered some of its saws until very recently. The mill specializes in cutting heavy structural timbers and still uses straddle trucks to transport lumber. Here's a chance to see a historic sawmill that continues to successfully compete in the 21st Century. This tour will involve narrow pathways, steep stairways and tight turns. It will also require walking up to 1/2 mile or so. Two hour drive each way. (Lunch included)
