Description

The Georgetown mill was the first of its kind on the north coast, started in 1875 by three partners, all whom married Indigenous women. The mill was sold to yet continued to be a supplier of wood products for several decades employing many Indigenous and Asian workers as well as Europeans over the years.

The isolated location of the mill meant that the cultural/environmental intersections of the people would change and sometimes meld together. Using graphics, and other historical primary sources, we will investigate the new and emerging cultural understandings of time and place at the Georgetown sawmill.
