Preston Mill

Imagine the sound of massive wood saws in a bustling mill town, turning stacks of logs into lumber to be used for new buildings in the rapidly-growing Puget Sound region. Logs were transported from the surrounding forests both by a flume flowing downstream as well as by steam donkey, or steam-powered winch, on a skid road to reach the mill pond of the Preston Mill Company. In later years, railroad logging trains brought logs to the mill, which operated from 1896 to 1990.

Today the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust, King County Parks, and Jones and Jones Architects and Landscape Architects have joined forces to create a new park on the mill site.  Find additional information about the park development here.
