My Dad, or me in 22 years.

Whitaker St. railroad tracks Silverton, OR

These tracks near my house use to lead to the largest sawmill in the world "Silverton Lumber Company". The mill was just a few blocks from here. It could produce more board feet of finished lumber in a 24 hr. period then any other mill ever. Now not a single 2x4 is milled in Silverton. The big mill was a victim of the depression and the last operating mill closed in town in the early 80's.

I hope to update this page often with new photos.

Welcome to my web site this is like my ultimate version of show and tell hope you enjoy it, I sure have putting it together. Now kick off the shoes and stay a while.

Who Am I Anyway?

My name is Mark Wahlster I live in Silverton, Oregon, I was born here and I am raising my family here. Wife Audrey, son Philip and step daughter Erin (she's in the US Navy)I drive truck for a Landscape supply company called Abiqua Forest Products. I'm 43 at the time this is being writen, about 1/2 way I'm thinken!!

So why is my page titled "awahlster" That's easy when we first set up our email AOL decided to give us a screen name based on the wife's card we were using to set up the account and before we got a round to changing it I was doing business on eBay and around the web as "awahlster" so why change??
