Woolen Mill Art

The is the old Thomas Kay Woolen Mill  ( Mission Mills) in Salem, Oregon. It is an historic textile mill that goes back to 1898.

The mill has long ceased production. However, this is a display they had setup for tours of the mill.

Luckily, I was able to capture this scene when I did. Since, the machinery has been taken out and the whole area has been converted into a meeting room.

Such is life! The woolen mill produced fine wool blankets and fabrics for 70 years. The mill transformed raw Willamette Valley wool into fabric and blankets which were well known throughout the West. It was the only woolen mill museum west of Missouri.

The image has been converted to a digital painting that I hope you enjoy. If you would like to explore this image, or others, please see links below!
