Did you know… the Camas Mill celebrated their 140 anniversary this week?
In 1883, this area was the perfect place to start a mill. The mighty Columbia River for shipping, nearby lakes to provide power to run machinery and thousands of acres of timber. This was the year that Henry Pittock, owner of the Oregonian newspaper in Portland bought 2,600 acres of land and started building a paper mill to supply better newsprint for his and other newspapers. The mill came first and Camas, originally called Lacamas, grew up around it. We love our mill and legacy of dedicated people who have been and are a part of it today.
