Description

This item is a newspaper clipping from the Watauga Democrat about Boone Fork Lumber Company in Shulls Mill, NC, with notes from Emily Kellogg Whiting Norvelle, the daughter-in-law of William S. Whiting who was the owner of the company. The article appears to be titled "Industry To Grow At A Slow Pace" and features a black and white photograph of a mill below. The mill's water tank is visible, as are mountains in the distance. Typed across the image are Whiting's notes about inaccuracies in the article. The caption of the image indicates that Boone Fork was open from 1916 until five years later when all the timber had been cut and it closed. For more information about William S. Whiting and his lumber operations, see Series 7 of the Lowery-Whiting Collection.
