Lumber Industry in Jasper, FL

Joe Bartolini <jbart@...>
 

Tonight my Public TV station broadcasted "Memory of a Large Christmas"
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lillian_Smith_%28author%29

The author, Lilian Smith grew up in Jasper FL where her father ran a
turpentine mill and saw mill among other enterprises. For some reason
he lost these businesses and relocated his large family to their summer
retreat in the mountains near Clayton GA.

Can anyone here provide some background on the lumber industry in
Jasper, FL 1890 - 1915+. A quick Google search didn't turn up much, as
with a search of the FL Photographic Collection

(interesting search though).

Merry Christmas
