Vernonia Lake Mill Pond-
Located 34 miles from Portland the City of Vernonia is a former pioneer settlement dating back to 1874. Surrounded by forests its historic roots are in the lumber industry. There is a 45-acre reservoir now used as a fishing spot and walking trail. Along the trail are the remains of the Oregon-American Lumber Company mill.
The old fuel house has not become a site for graffiti art and a four wall mural. The open roof area allows the trees room to grow with rain and natural light.
To claim your spot bring a ladder 🙂
The mill has not been in operation since 1957
If you find yourself on the Oregon coast here is the location of this graffiti mural.

Have a nice day!
I love the trees growing up in the old foundation 😀
How long is the walk to the old structure?
Easy and the trail is smooth asphalt. Maybe 1/5 mile. $5 to park
Too far me to hike this year. Maybe next year after I get over long haul and get my walking ability back. I’d love to go there. 😀
I hope so. No hills
A lot of colour and a variety of murals. Nice old structure with trees growing inside it.
Thanks for participating in Monday Murals Alice.
