    Default Lime Oregon

    Lime is an unincorperated community in Baker County, Oregon, United States, five miles north of Huntington on U.S. Route 30/Interstate 84.[1] It is near the confluence of Marble Creek and the Burnt River on the Union Pacific Railroad. The Oregon Trail passes through Lime.[2]
    Lime post office was established in 1899 and closed in 1964.[3] In 1940, the community had a population of 18.[4] The deposits of limestone in the area were manufactured into lime that supplied a large area of Eastern Oregon and western Idaho.[3][5] The Acme Cement Plaster Company built a plant at lime in 1916 to produce plaster.[3] The Sun Portland Cement Company bought the plant in 1921 and built another facility for producing Portland cement.[3] In 1926, the company merged with Oregon Portland Cement Company from Portland; by the 1960s, the Lime facility produced 1,200,000 barrels a year.[3] As the nearby limestone deposits were depleted, limestone was brought from the Nelson area near Durkee.[3] A new plant was built at Nelson in 1979 and the facility at Lime was closed in 1980.[3] Oregon Portland Cement Company merged with the Ash Grove Cement Company in 1983. copyed from WIKI

    Welcome to the forum!

    Your pictures still show the tromel in place.
    That was gone when I blew through there a month ago.

    It looks like they're setting up a wind farm in the area.

    I think there are two more threads about Lime on this board,
    if anyone is interested. They have a lot more pics.

    The Kiln has been removed from the site, The upper part of the site (Near the substation up top) Seemed to be an area for heavy equipment parking, it looked more or less like road building was going on than demolition. Don't know if it is going to be torn down or not. I will try and keep an eye on the site although I don't get out that way very often.

    Here are a few pictures that I took back in late November.
