Lumber piling, Scribner's Mill, Harrison, ca. 1940

Contributed by National Archives at Boston


A lumber piling yard at Scribner's Mill. The peak of operation at Scribner’s Mill started during the First World War and continued to the end of the Korean War. In addition to the usual line of lumber products, the mill manufactured shook (box parts) which were used for shipment of ammunition abroad.

The mill was bought by Elijah Scribner and his son Cyrus in January 1851 from Bro. Worthy. From 1851 to 1962 three generations of Scribners owned and operated the mill and two additional generations worked in the mill.
