A Pictorial History of Preston Mill Image

The Seattle Fire of 1889 led to massive rebuilding of that city’s downtown — and spurred the development of lumber enterprise in eastern King County. The Preston Mill Company was founded in 1892, one of hundreds of logging and lumber businesses in the area. The town of Preston grew as a result of the mill’s success. Relying on photos from his own collection, and those of the Issaquah History Museums, Erickson documents the history of the mill, the town, and its residents. The book includes a number of original images, including maps, photographs, and documents.
