RSVP to August 24 Tour of Hampton Mill in Banks, 9:00am
We're excited to announce that Hampton Lumber, the new owner of the Banks Lumber Mill, has agreed to give us a tour of
the mill on Thursday, August 24 at 9 am. The mill manufactures 2x4s and 2x6s from 8 ft to 20 ft long. One unique aspect of
the mill is that product is moved through the mill very quickly and efficiently without any stopping or staging, so a log can
enter the mill in the morning and leave as lumber in the afternoon.
RSVP is required for this tour. This is a member tour only, at the request of Hampton Lumber Company. Please
send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at (503)703-6573 with the following
information: Name(s) and Contact information (phone or email). Please respond by Monday, August 21.
We will meet at the office building at the mill site in Banks. The address is: 13620 NW Commerce Street
Banks, OR 97106. The office building is located on the east side of Commerce Street next to the train tracks. Parking is
located immediately north and south of the office building alongside the train tracks. Please do not park at the far south end
of the facility where the trucks load the finished lumber. The facility is compact and fairly easy to walk, and our hosts can be
flexible if folks do not want to walk far. No children under 10 please.
