Darrington has a long history as a timber based community with many sawmills in the area. Hampton Mill is the largest employer for the Darrington area and their purchase and upgrade of the mill speaks of their commitment to the success of our community.

"Think Green"
 isn't just a slogan, it is a way of doing business at all our Hampton Sites. The projects promoted at our sawmills are designed to provide sustainability in two areas: providing a safe working environment for our employees and visitors to our locations and promoting new ways of doing business that preservers natural resources.

It all started for what is now called Hampton Affiliates in 1942 When Bud Hampton purchased a sawmill in Willamina, Oregon.  Hampton Affiliates now operates sawmills in Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. Hampton moved to Darrington in 2002, upgrading the mill to a state of the art mill and building a Co-Gen to cleanly burn all woody bio-waste and converting it into electricity to heat the buildings, run equipment and dry the green wood in the kilns.  What is surplus is sold back to the local utility, Snohomish County Public Utility District.
