Plywood Mill Discovery Point
Wood processing mills were the foundation of Anacortes’ early economic development. These mills provided jobs, building materials, and commercial products that sustained the City’s early years. This important industry helped sustain the community into 20th century when the last mill closed. The wood processing mills along the Anacortes shoreline produced a wide variety of products including shingles, dimensional lumber, boxes, pipes, and plywood over a century of operation.
