These photos were loaned to us by Louise Lancaster. George King of the Lincoln Historical Society tells us he thinks they were taken around 1915-16.

Although there have been numerous changes over the years, the pulp and paper industry still supports many other businesses in this area. Loggers, truckers, equipment dealers, chain saw shops and others depend on the mill. In bygone days, people selling horses, harnesses and feed benefited, as well as blacksmiths, riverdrivers and bateau builders.

George also sent us some photos of the mill, which appear below. He says his pictures were taken in the 20s and 1930.

If you have any early photos of Lincoln's industries, we'd love to display them here. You can e-mail them to us as JPEG files, or bring them to our office so we can scan them and give them back to you.
