Conroe in Montgomery County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
This is a "Peckerwood" Mill
Donated by Frank Ross, Sr.
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.
