Maxville a Logging Camp,
Wallowa County, Oregon 1920’s

In the early 20th century, logging camps and towns seemed to grow from the forests of Eastern Oregon. It was a time when men’s muscle cut the timber, steam donkeys gathered it, and trains hauled it to the sawmills of the region. Since those days, the years have erased the towns, and all that’s left are the memories of the places that many people once called home.
