Overview of the Johnston and White Sawmill


A birds eye view looking down on the Johnston and White Sawmill. Built by Peter Stoutenburg in the 1880s, it was sold to Johnston & White in 1891. As well as sawing logs, they manufactured barrel hoops and staves. The partners were John and William Johnston, and Thomas and James White. The Johnston and White families lived in adjacent houses, which can been seen in the background atop Bear Hill.
