66501 End Rd
The "Mill 80" as the Blue Mtn. 4-H Center site was known as the homestead of E.C. Lindsay. In 1961, The Lindsay Estate Inc. established the site as a demonstration tree farm in cooperation with Boise Cascade and the Oregon State University Extension Service. Since that time it has been the site of numerous forest demonstrations and outdoor educational programs.
In 1967, Blue Mtn. 4-H Center Inc. secured a 50 year lease to the "Mill 80" and access to the adjacent 160 acres. In 1975 the 3,328 square foot lodge was constructed from donations of money, materials and labor. In 1981 the "Mill 80" property was deeded to the Blue Mtn. 4-H Center by the estate President, Steele Lindsay.
The "Mountain Grandma" Gail Vincent, willed one-half of her net estate to the 4-H Center in 1985. The ten cabins were built in her memory in 1987. Each cabin is named for a donor who contributed one half of the cost for construction.
