Pacific Straw Paper and Board Company

Pacific Straw Paper and Board Company
Item# 4696

The Pacific Straw Paper and Board Company was incorporated in Washington in January of 1922. The company’s headquarters were located in Vancouver.

The company’s plant, built in 1925, was located in the city of Longview, and produced modest amounts of paper and cardboard. The mill was situated on 15 acres of land along the Cowlitz River near the Long-Bell mill site. The company managed to weather the Great Depression and expanded operations during World War II to meet the demand for cardboard containers. The company reorganized in later years, becoming the Pacific Paperboard Company whose forte was making newsprint. A fire destroyed most of the paper mill in 1952, but the company continued to produce pulp until it ceased operations in 1969.
