Boyd, Oregon-- the little school high on a bluff above the grist mill and giant wooden elevator...



Now a ghost town, this was a bustling place 120 years ago.  Boyd was dis-incorporated in 1955.  The wooden grain elevator is quite large and is visible above the trees.  Steam trains and stage coaches stopped here. Now there is only the schoolhouse and the elevator.

Life moves on, things change but no always for the better sometimes. The last 2 properties nestled amoung the tree. A lovely image a y gone days.
