Viewed from atop Forsters Toothpick Mill, the rear of Hotel Strong is seen with a Sandy River valley backdrop. The hotel was built in the mid-1800s as the home of Jeremy Porter. His brother, Elias Porter, lived in the home barely visible at the far right. Their father, Ezekiel Porter, raised his family in the home at far left.

To the right of the Ezekiel Porter house, the route of the Sandy River Railroad can be seen as it snakes its way through the valley toward Phillips.
