Hack water from the huge Bonneville dam will form the
largest log pond in the world. The Cascade mountains on the
Washington side of the river contains millions and millions of
feet of merchantable timber. Cheap power from the Bonneville
dam and water transportation promises to make Cascade Locks
an ideal location for pulp and paper mills and for a sawmill.
Already industrialists are studying the territory adjacent to
the Bonneville dam with a view to determining the feasibility
of the area for manufacturing purposes.
Cascade Locks has an abundance of level lands fronting the
river. It is served by water, rail and highway. The rolling hills

Every visitor to the Bonneville dam should spend some time
in Cascade Locks. The town is only a short 10 minutes from the
dam site. There are now 2500 people on the Oregon side of the
river, within 10 miles of the dam.
Cascade Locks is the nearest town, and the ouly town within
miles of the dam on the Oregon side of the river. Completion of
the dam should mean the beginning of a new industrial era.
Cascade Locks has been a splendid town in the past, should
be an important business center on the river and highway in the
future. It is not a boom town.
