You may know that the Pacific Logging Congress (PLC) will be holding it’s 7th In The Woods live demo show September 25-27, 2014, at the Port Blakely Tree Farms in Molalla, Ore.
BUT, did you know that . . . Port Blakely Companies began in 1864 when Nova Scotia sea captain William Renton opened a sawmill at Port Blakely Harbor on Bainbridge Island, Wash. The sheltered harbor and deep water made it an ideal location to mill and ship lumber.
Over the next four decades, the Port Blakely Mill Company flourished, becoming the world’s largest sawmill under one roof. At its peak, the mill shipped lumber to California, Australia, England, Germany, France, South America, and the eastern United States.
