"Histories & Mysteries of the Columbia Gorge"...from the author of Curious Gorge
on Google Maps
I'm working on a "exploring visible remnants of Gorge History" guidebook, tentatively titled "Histories & Mysteries of the Columbia Gorge". This book, when I get it finished, will focus on still-visible remnants of gorge history and the stories that go along with the ruins and relics. The photos here are but a small sample of the interesting "then and now" I hope to create.

Isn't this Mill Creek Falls?

Thanks for posting!

This is a view of the Syncline in Washington from the Oregon side across the Columbia River

Where was it stolen from Gorgegal?? Put a link address here so we can see and follow...and embarrass this rubbish.

According to Helen Guyton Rees, "Shaniko: Wool Capital to Ghost Town" (Portland, OR : Binford & Mort, 1982) pg. 151 --

This building is "At Cross Hollows the sturdy double-cupola barn built by Leslie Payne is seen standing near the collapsed forms of other farm buildings. The house stands nearby, every window missing."

(Op. cit. p. 7 ) "Scherneckau built a store, saloon, and 16 room hotel at Cross Hollows."

A great project you have. We must preserve the old so the future generations can see their past. Like the whole batch!

Kenn, it's under the very last (west) bit of the 1872 Wagon Road.

There was a picnic area there with tables and firepits, not sure how it relates. Are there marks of a plaque on it or parts of a fireplace?
