Welcome to Timbertown, USA

By

Willamina is commonly referred to as Timbertown, USA.  In fact, it's advertised on the welcome sign!

Detailed information on Willamina at City-Data.com including population, graphs on demographics, real estate info (although I can help you with that!), school info and even weather charts!  Thank you also to City-data for the image I borrowed.  

Although this image is much better, but my respect for art keeps me from snatching it!  Check out Aaron Lynch's website while you're there, he's a fabulous photographer and worthy of our appreciation.

There's evidence of the timber industry everywhere in Willamina and a sense of pride in it's history.  The next two images were borrowed from the Yamhill County Historical Society. View more cool pictures of Willamina here.courtesy of Yamhill County Historical Society

As I shot this, I wonder how many others have taken this shot before me.  It's a striking image located at the edge of town near the intersection of Highway 22 and Highway 18 also know as Valley Junction.    Make sure you stop and appreciate it on your way into town.

Those are fabulous old photos.  That's quite a stack of cut timber waiting to become lumber for the housing industry when it decides it's time for recovery and back to building homes!
