Growing and processing flax for oil and textiles played an important role in the economy of the Mid-Willamette Valley. The Willamette Heritage Center Collections has over 200 items related to the history of flax and linen production in the Pacific Northwest. Kylie Pine, the Curator and Collections Manager for the Willamette Heritage Center, has graciously digitized multiple historical pamphlets and magazine articles related to the flax industry in Oregon. We are thankful to Kylie, and the Willamette Heritage Center, for their collaboration on our flax to linen research, as well as for sharing all of this wonderful documentation with the community.
