    Pine Ridge was a company town in southern Oregon located on the Klamath Indian Reservation. It was about two miles away from the town of Chiloquin, also located on the reservation. In 1925, the Forest Lumber Company obtained more than 500,000,000 feet of Oregon timber and built a mill located on the Southern Pacific Railroad's Klamath Falls line. The president of the company was R.B. White of Kansas City. In 1939, there was a large fire that destroyed Pine Ridge, leaving 600 people homeless. The fire destroyed all buildings owned by the lumber company, including the box factory, the lumber shed, the planer mill, the company-operated hotel and office building as well as several million feet of lumber. Refugees from the fire went to Chiloquin for aid and shelter. less
