This is a photograph of the teepee burner at the North Fork lumber mill. Sawdust and scraps of wood from the milling process were burned in the teepee burner. In the June 1951 newsletter of the Associated Lumber & Box Company sawmill — The American Eagle — the teepee burner and mill pond were operational.
On what year and month was the teepee burner retired? Also, what year and month did the mill pond get filled in with dirt to allow logs to be unloaded directly off the logging trucks to the conveyors to haul the logs into the mill?
