Lamb and Crane Mill, Whiting, 1910

Contributed by Penobscot Marine Museum


The Lamb and Crane sawmill was on a small millpond on the Orange River in Whiting near where the Route 1 bridge crosses the Orange River.

Brothers Hatevil and William Bell had started the original mill on the site in the 1830s. Around 1910, when this photo was taken, it looked like Lamb and Crane’s mill was a busy place.

In 1920, however, it was torn down and none of the buildings remain.
