St. Helens Creosote Mill

(Enlarge image) Tidelands abutting this Pope and Talbot creosote mill on Scappoose Bay caused a court case between the company and the State Land Board in the 1950s. Questions related to the legal boundary of the tidelands led to a sale of property from the State Land Board to the company in 1957.
