Michelle and Craig’s Wedding Nuptials, Foundry At Oswego Pointe.

Michelle and Craig’s Wedding Nuptials, Foundry at Oswego Pointe.  They exchanged their wedding vows on April 14th 2016. Friends and family gathered. It was a wonderful and joyous occasion.  The Foundry sits on a beautiful site overlooking the Willamette River.  Lake Oswege or Old Town grew with the iron industry between 1865 and 1894. The Oregon Iron Company operated from 1865 until it failed in 1876. The company employed about 80 men when the furnace was in full operation.  In 1877 two investors formed the Oswego Iron Company and sporadically operated the furnace, which produced a total of 18,500 tons of iron until financial troubles closed it in 1881.

In 1882 the company was reorganized as the Oregon Iron and Steel Company. Under Simeon Reed, the company employed approximately 300 men at one time. Business boomed in the 1890, but it was short lived as ships began dumping imported iron on the docks in Portland. The iron had served as ballast and could be sold at a relatively low price. The depression of 1893 brought about the final closure of the plant in 1894.  With the decline of the iron industry and the increased popularity of the lake as a recreation area, the residential area grew mainly to the west. The distinct boundaries of the Willamette River, the iron foundry, and the main road and commercial avenue of Oswego prevented Old Town from expanding much beyond its original borders. It was a beautiful venue for the wedding as remnants of the “old foundry” are still visible.  The beautiful Willamette River flows by the venue with large trees that line the bank of the river.  http://www.thefoundrylakeoswego.com
