What Bert Has To Say About Longview Metro Area

Longview and its sister city Kelso make up a grain-loading and forest-products center serving ocean traffic coming up the Columbia River. The area contains a complex of grain elevators and mills, an outdated urban core and set of working class neighborhoods and urban sprawl uncharacteristic of many Pacific Northwest towns. The area is close to Portland, 40 miles to the south, and is a western gateway to the Mount St. Helens area.
