2017-12-23 Santa Cruz Lumber Company
Bruce Baker, a local logger and caretaker of timber properties in the area, gave a tour of some private property including the old Santa Cruz Lumber Company sawmill to a small group of people.
This site opened in 1923 and operated continuously until 1955, when the original sawmill was refitted from steam power to electric, except for the carriage shot gun feed and log turner which remained steam powered. It operated until 1972, when it was closed.
