Without the Eatonville Lumber Mill there wouldn’t have been an Eatonville. It was the industry that helped build the little community from a settlement to a town and employed up to 200 people.
If you look closely, you can see the rail cars loaded up with product. Also, to the right is the Eatonville Lumber Company store, which was used by everyone on in the community.
It shut down in the 1950s.
