    This place is now only two vacant mill buildings, everything else has been razed. Not only that, it's crawling with people, while it looks promising from the road it's not even worth the gas to drive out to see it.
     Security Measures
  • fences
  • barbed wire
  • part-time guard
  • locked gates
  • 9-5 weekdays there’s a staff of 5 in the main building, on weekend 1 guard sits in the shack by the main gate
  •  Historical Dates

     Required Equipment
     Recommended Equipment

    In an effort to provide cheap aluminum for the war effort, the Columbia River was dammed to provide the electricity and the power hungry smelters went up all along the river. This one was first online and apparently provided the aluminum that the Enola Gay was made from.

    The plant has been moth-balled pending some time when electricity prices may fall and once again make operation profitable.
