In 1925, Kerry sold the Kerry Timber Company as well as the Columbia & Nehalem River Railroad for $3,000,000 to the newly incorporated K.P. Timber Company. This new corporation was owned jointly by the Peninsula Lumber Company of Portland, Oregon and the Knappton Mills Company of Knappton, Washington. Therefore, K.P. stood for Knappton-Peninsula.
