Old Sawmill as Bug Out Location


In the late 1800s and into the early 1900s, sawmill towns were established all over the United States. These were fully functioning towns with a church, school, company store, post office, and sawmill. This was a time before heavy equipment. Everything was horse, mule, and man power.

Without heavy machinery, the sawmill had to be brought to the forest. To facilitate moving logs to the sawmill, narrow gauge tracks were built going from the sawmill out into the forest. Some of the tracks would stretch for miles.
