You would have heard the buzz of saw blades, the roar of trains and trucks moving logs in and lumber out, the blast of steam from the smoke stack, and the set-your-watch-by-it blow of the lunch whistle. But that's all gone now.
The old mill that supplied 500 to 2,000 workers with gainful employment for generations shut down operation in 2002.
While we now have access to our coastline and can restore wildlife habitat along the bluffs, there is a trade-off. Fort Bragg has suffered a loss of our economy and to the vitality and pride of many working people. A major part of our community has changed.
