Inscription.  This exhibit has been built on the actual site where a vertical or "up and down" sawmill operated in the 1800s. Excavation work in the 1970s indicates that the sawmill straddled the pit, and water to turn the mill wheel flowed through the race to a pond on Owens Creek. The sawyer's home stood on the hillside where the campground is now located. Remains of the house foundation and stone fencework are still evident, reminding us of this bygone era.

Please be careful and watch your footing as you explore the reconstructed sawmill exhibit.
