2016 Fullerton Sawmill Day

Calcasieu Ranger District on Kisatchie National Forest hosted Fullerton Sawmill Day Oct. 15. The event, which drew nearly 500 participants, celebrates memories of what was once the largest saw­mill west of the Mississippi, Fullerton Sawmill. Attendees revisited life in the early 1900s through demonstrations from quilters, games of the era and viewing artifacts. Fullerton Sawmill operated from 1907 until 1927. Today, all that is left of this once-booming town of 5,000 are a few founda­tions and the memories of the descendants of past residents.
