I’ve been watching the progress of the new construction of a log cabin in Stites for the past few months. It’s a nice looking little cabin at the downstream end of town. It’s great to see a new building going up in Stites. I’ve been curious about the fate of the Kooskia Opera House, so I stopped to see Marcia Graves at Graves Nursery and Thrift Store. She and Mike are excited to have sold it to a younger family who are in the process of moving here from out of state. I checked with Umpqua Bank about what they are planning to do with their bank building in Kooskia once they close the bank in January. They plan to sell the building as quickly as possible. Hoping that someone with deep pockets will see a future for this building.November 15, 2017 6 a.m. read more..
