Just wanted to make everyone aware of a new book out by TC Smith
called "The Tale of Three Sawmill Towns- Alco, Long Leaf & Meridian,
La"? We just got copies from Jim Pitts who helped Mr Smith write the
book. Cost is $19.99. It is available from the Southern Forest Heritage
Museum & Research Center in Long Leaf, La.

The book is 144 pages soft cover and full of info on the mill and the
towns and town life. Many great photos from then & now, including the
railroads. My initial impression is it is very good.
