Aurora Mills


Aurora Mills
If you are bored, or even thinking about getting bored, a cool place to visit /investigate is Aurora Mills Architectural Salvage establishment in Aurora, Oregon...it will take “bored” away.  

They specialize in vintage and antique house parts. That's a “duh”! As far as I can tell, they have anything and everything vintage, and antique for home or business, and stuff you would have never thought of on your own.

It's located about 20 miles south of Portland just off of Highway 99E. Actually, as you are heading south it's about the first thing you see off to your right as you enter Aurora.  

I want to thank the folks at Aurora Mills for letting me take my camera and tripod through their place. They didn't have to allow it. They were more than kind...really appreciate it!

If it was your sole job to inventory everything they have in their place they would have to “carry you out” at the end of the day. To put it mildly, there is a whole lot of stuff to see both inside and out!

For camera folks, all the photos here are in High Dynamic Range Photography (HDR). If you don't know about this, three different exposures: an under exposure, spot on exposure, and an over exposed shot are taken within seconds of each other of the same thing, and then blended together in special software.  To put it another way, it takes 3 shots to get one final photo.

Oregon Natives and tourist have no excuse but to visit Aurora Mills. Sure, as a tourist you can go visit Multnomah Falls, downtown Portland , and the Oregon coast all by bus. But get off your duff and figure out a way to visit quaint Aurora...rent a car if you have to. Jeez!

Overall, the City of Aurora is one of the coolest and largest antique centers in Oregon. And, while you are there, make sure to go to Aurora Mills! You won't be sorry. Ooh, this is only Part one of the photos from there...so stay tuned!
