Regarding Lone Star Mill. This is California State Historical Landmark Number 155.
A sawmill was moved to this site by Hodge and (David S.) Terry, and named the Lone Star Mill, as Terry had been raised in Texas. A flour mill was added in 1855. The mill burned down in 1856 and subsequently rebuilt at the same site. Terry was a justice on the California Supreme Court from 1855-1859, but perhaps best remembered for having killed Senator David Broderick in a duel in 1859.
