Mayor says “we are losing our mill-town status, that is for sure.”

Woodgrain Millwork, headquartered in Fruitland, Idaho, is the latest owner of the mill, which is on more than 50 acres at North Main Street and NE Peters Road in Prineville.

The location has been a mill site since the 1930s, with a sawmill in operation there for more than its first 15 years, according to records at the Bowman Museum in Prineville. Raw logs come into a sawmill, which cuts them into lumber such as 2x4s.
