The Mills That Built

Product Details

By William Lansing

'The Mills That Built Coos Bay Oregon' is a history of the mills that populated the shores around Coos Bay, Oregon from the mid-1850’s to around 2020. It includes a 1923 base-map of the bay upon which each mill and their successors are labeled with dates of operation during this 170-year time frame. Without the map, documenting the Coos Bay mills would have been impossible. The map was needed in order to keep on track in describing the mills as they were built, burned down, went bankrupt, refinanced and rebuilt again during the cycles of the lumber, plywood and paper industries in our area.
