Anyone Recognize this Sawmill?
I would like to get some input on this sawmill. It is now in pieces, but other than the wood and rails that it used to run on, it is pretty much complete. With some research we have found out that it was moved from Waynesville, North Carolina, to Arkansas at the turn of the last century. Just found out this week that my great-great-grandfather operated this mill in Amity, Arkansas, and had a contract to provide milled wood to F.T. Smith Rim & Bow Co., Ft. Smith, Arkansas.
From the research I have done in the last few days, it looks to be a Frick or American, but I have not had a chance to look for manufacturing marks on the main unit. There is a manufacturer’s name on the saw that cuts the timber into widths, but I cannot make it out.
