NORTH FORK – The interpretive sign project at the former North Fork lumber mill has been completed! Boulders were moved into place to enhance the overlook where three signs describe the 50-year history of the North Fork mill and the prosperity it brought to the community.

Many individuals and community organizations helped to make the interpretive site a reality.
This week Art Cruz, of West Valley Construction, volunteered his machine and his skills to install boulders around the three interpretive signs. Last month, Fred Faysal and his father, of Faysal Construction, helped to bore holes and install the signs. Brother Bethel graded & smoothed out the area. The Sierra Vista Scenic Byway committee committed half of the cost to create and install the signs. Members of the North Fork History Group funded, designed and had manufactured the high-density plastic signs, and many community members donated funds toward this effort.
It was generosity and community spirit that made the interpretive site a reality.
Stop by and learn more about your local history by visiting the newly completed interpretive signs at the Community Development Council’s property in South Fork. And, let’s all thank the individuals who put in effort for the benefit of the entire community!
