The Woodstock Lumber Mill, of Woodstock, New Hampshire, was built along the Pemigewasset River in 1907 and operated until 1913, when it burnt down on August 14th of that year. In 2011 Brian Bollinger, of Bollinger Edgerly Scale Trains, was contracted to build an HO scale (1:87) replica of this lumber mill for Robert Liljistrand. Robert's family used to lease land to the Woodstock Lumber Mill back when it was still in operation. Brian teamed up with Jim Harr, of Stella Scale Models, to build this museum quality structure for Bob.
Find out what it was like to log the timbers of the great White Mountains of New Hampshire during the turn of the century in this documentary style video including interviews with Bill Gove — who has published a number of books on logging in the White Mountains, Stuart Wallace — a professor of History at the University of New Hampshire in Manchester, Bill Mellett, a local long time resident of Woodstock and Mike Levesque, a 5th generation logger. Then join Brian and Jim to see how one of these long lost lumber mills was painstakingly recreated in miniature form.
