Last week I wrote a post about the 100th anniversary of the Inland Empire Paper Company mill in Millwood, so this seemed like a good time to pull out a historic photo of the mill. This photo, courtesy the Spokane Valley Heritage Museum, shows the mill at its present location in Millwood in the 1940s. Don't you just love all those old cars?

If you have always wanted to see what goes on inside the Inland Empire Paper Mill in Millwood, now is your chance to take a peek. The company will be hosting tours Friday and Saturday to celebrate 100 years in business. The 45 minute tours be begin at 10 a.m. Friday and 8 a.m. Saturday. The final tour will begin at 3 p.m. on both days.
Visitors are required to wear closed-toed shoes and the tour isn't appropriate for children under age 10. The company will provide safety glasses and hearing protection. Visitors should call 924-1911 ext. 316 to set an appointment for a tour.
Inland Empire Paper is owned by Cowles Co., which also owns The Spokesman-Review.
