Logging in the Old Mill: Local Cyclist Tells the Story

Bend, now a town of outdoor enthusiasts, microbreweries, and technology, used to be the center of timber production. The Old Mill District was the heart of this activity, with two active mills, one on the east bank of the river and one on the west bank. In the 1950s, over 50 rail cars per day would off-load timber into the river. On today’s show, long-term resident and bad-ass gravel cyclist Jeff Boulet shares snippets of history with us.
