When Heppner Was a Leading Wool Center
4 j' "
This picture, taken In 1901 and
used in a special edition of the
Heppner Gazette on New Years
day, 1902, shows the old Henry
Heppner wool warehouse, the
forerunner of the Interior Ware
house company plant which was
destroyed in Monday's fire. Old
"65" had reached the end of the
line at this point, for the exten
sion to the Union Oil plant came
many years later.
As the hills to the south and
west of Heppner were broken up
and seeded to wheat, calling for
more storage space than the wool
warehouses afforded, platforms
were built to the north of the
Heppner warehouse. These plat
forms were eventually covered
and became part of the ware
house facilities and at a still later
date, bins were put in for the bulk
handling of grain.
Mrs. Jack Loyd has asked that veterans hospital. Only one- or
she be contacted by all persons 'two-ounce containers may be us
who wish to give jams or jellies jed" for contributions, since each
to the Morrow county ward of the 'must be of one-meal size.
