Historic Hood River
Harry DeWitt and Maltie Dukes
Here are Harry DeWitt and Maltie Dukes walking a log in the Columbia circa 1904. Notes indicate it was by the location of the interstate bridge with Bingen in the background.
Between about 1900 and 1906 this was the location of the Lost Lake Lumber Company. The fluctuating levels of the Columbia River as well as the difficulty getting logs down the Hood River caused them to move up to Dee in 1906.
