Historic Hood River
The Other Side of the Tracks
It’s not easy to get your bearings in this one because so many of these structures are gone. Start at the very far right where you can see the Mt. Hood Hotel annex, at First and Oak. In the middle you may recognize a couple of the houses along State Street. The Distillery is long gone, as is the AGA Warehouse next to it. They were north of State Street between Front Street and the bridge over the Hood River. You can see what we now call “The Ruins” at Springhouse cellars– the remains of an older cannery that didn’t last very long.
