Inscription.  These types of mills were used by farmers to make rough lumber to build their barns, stock pens and fences. They usually had a co-op ownership of several farmers and moved around from farm to farm, as were needed..

Early settlers started an industry that did very well for 80 to 90 years...The operation of saw mills. When the industry was in full swing, nearly every community usually did all the labor. Many mills provided housing for their workers and at the turn of the century the common laborers earned about one dollar a day. By the 1970's most of the large mills in our county had closed.
 
Erected by Heritage Museum of Montgomery County.
