    “ BANDON BY THE SEA ”
The Business Center of Coos County
o
Bandon is situated at the mouth of Coquille river, has a population
approximating 3000 and is destined to become one of the most important
points on the Pacific coast as a manufacturing center and as the natural
outlet for an immense country rich in natural resources. It is the seaport
and natural business center for the southern half of Coos county and all of
Curry county. Its climatic conditions are unsurpassed and it is an ideal
summer resort. The average temperatures are: high 62. low 52. Snow
is seldom seen, and severe storms, blizzards and extremes of temperature
are unknown
The business portion of the town is located on the south side of Co­
quille river, in a sheltered nook, and lhe residential portion is a level
plateau which rises abruptly back of the river. This magnificent table-land
overlooks the Pacific ocean and extends east and south for several miles, a
most ideal and perfect lay of land to build a city upon.

THE FOREST.
A good deal of country east of the city is being logged off and the
greater part of export products are lumber and wood by-products. Tin'
dozen or more sawmills are running steadily even during these dull times;
the qualtv of Coquille Valley Fir is irreproachable and the demand varies
very little. There is opportunity for the establishment of plants to utilize
wood by-products in this city not equalled in many similar districts.
There is the Douglas F:r, Spruce, Oak, Ash, Myrtle and Alder varieties
to use, each superior in its own class. Port Orford White Cedar is found
