This photo, courtesy of Martha Parrish and Pat Van Eaton, is of the Eatonville Lumber Company store at around 1916.
The Eatonville mill had a good run — in operation from 1896 until it closed up in 1954.
Interesting Fact: The subway systems in New York City used timber from the Eatonville mill.
Although the mill store is gone, there’s still ample evidence of the community. The Eatonville Lumber Company built 22 houses, which they rented for a nominal fee to mill employees. A number of those houses are still standing near Eatonville Millpond Park.
