The Bridal Veil Lumbering Company logged Larch Mountain, near Portland, Oregon, and milled timber in the company towns of Palmer and Bridal Veil from 1886-1936. A fire in the Bridal Veil Mill ended the company's operations and the town was largely abandoned. Most of the remaining structures wer demolished in 2001. The Bridal Veil post office continues to postmark mail.
