If you love abandoned places and street art, then you need to go right away to Vernonia Lake Park. The town of Vernonia and this park are northwest of Portland. The park is quite large and offers a small, five-site campground, hiking trails, a playground, and fishing. But today, many people are drawn to this park for another reason. There’s an old sawmill there that has been abandoned since 1957. Since then, people have used this eerie, empty space as a place to hang out, and more recently, as a canvas for street art. You’ll be amazed by this very special abandoned sawmill in Oregon. Read on to learn more.
