Dry Creek Flashes
To the lumber mill
Placeholder Image
Coming out of the Fraziers we see a big truck loaded with fresh cut logs from some location in the Frazier Hollow. It’s destination is a lumber mill.Lumber mills are not new to the Dry Creek valley. In past years, men and we can name a few who owned and operated lumber mills for a living.Brack White and Bill Cubbins operated a lumber mill in the Cubbin’s Hollow.Palace Cripps and son, Austin owned and operated their lumber mill near their home on up the valley where we believe the Frosty Tramel family bought later for a dwelling place and may still own.These lumbermen are all dead and at present there are no lumber mills in the valley that operate as such.In the lower part of the valley, we believe there was a lumber mill owned and operated by Mr. Fuson, who was related to the late Dr. Bob Fuson.Lumber is a necessity, very useful and we all appreciate our lumbermen.We say hello to one that we know, Tommy Hooper of Smithville new at the job but a good one.Wow! it is cold this Wednesday morning.
