Mass Tort Law Lawyers In Bridal Veil Oregon

Bridal Veil is a virtual ghost town located in Multnomah County, Oregon, United States. It was established in the 1880s during a logging boom. It was established by a logging company as it harvested timber on nearby Larch Mountain. It was a company mill town, built and centered around a sawmill, and it had a close relationship with the logging town of Palmer for the first 50 years of its history. As of July 2006, all that remained of the town was a post office, a cemetery and a church. It is located in the Columbia River Gorge.
