    Lots of old equipment inside several buildings. There are presently two cool silos, two old brick buildings being demolished, and some newer metal clad buildings no longer being used for their original purpose. One building sports a large overhead crane/hoist that is not in use.

  •  Recommended Equipment

    The Gillies brothers established a steam powered sawmill here in 1873. For 90 years they continued this operation, concentrating almost exclusively on pine lumber. In 1963 Consolidated Paper Corporation purchased the mill and began producing paper. In May 1992 Consolidated Bathurst finally closed the mill, yet some portions continued to be used by smaller firms. The older part of the mill was vacated in 1998, and a small lumber yard continues to operate out of one of the newer buildings. Tembec stores chipboard in one of the newer buildings as well. In 2007 the oldest parts of the building were undergoing demolition... to be continued.
