Title:
Log Mill and Hill
Town:
Lowell
County:
Orleans
State:
Vermont
Date:
1860 - 1900
Description:
Photo shows sawmill that was later destroyed in the 1927 flood. Note cleared slope in background with rocky outcrops and fences. In the foreground are some cut logs as well as much cutting debris. There are numerous buildings including sheds and what looks like several houses. There are several horse drawn wagons and horses. There are men posing for the picture among the logs and sawn timber. There are two very tall posts which appear to have some tackle at the top. One comes out of a building to the left. Presumably these were used to move logs? This is summer as the trees have leaves on. Jeanne M. Douglas writes on 2006-7-1: I think it is the Shatney sawmill on Lowell Mountain. My father, Leonard A. Mason, was at the mill with his grandfather, Mitchell Shatney, and his Uncle Frank Shatney the day that the mill dam, the mill pond, and the sawmill were washed into the valley.
