     History
    In 1910, the McCallum Lumber Company began lumbering operations in the Markstay-Warren area. They built a mill, homes for the workers, store and school. The town was named Callum for short.

    At around the same time another railside town sprang to life a little further along the railway line, named Stinson. The name came from the Stinson Lumber Company which was located in Coniston.

    A gas station and store across from the railway crossing on Highway 17 was operated by a Mr. and Mrs. Fowler. It operated up until the late 70's.

    Eventually a neighbour (Mr. Fram) purchased the property and demolished the derelict store. You can still see the old gas pumps and storage shed as you drive down Highway 17.

    Stinson is located in Markstay-Warren at the railway crossing before the town of Hagar. If you follow a trail up the hill, you will see the remains of the old Highway 17 garage truck.
