Mineral’s Mill (early 1900s)

Here are a couple great shots of milling in Mineral, Wash., earlier in the early 1900s. You rarely get action shots, like this one of the log falling into the mill pond.

Mineral got it’s start as a mining town. Prospectors came searching for gold and found coal and arsenic, which was both unfortunately and unhealthy. The would-be gold town turned to its trees and was the home of a logging camp and sawmill, neither of which you’ll find there today. You will, however, find some great fishing.
