Sturgeons Mill is a great Saturday afternoon activity. The Mill is operated solely by volunteers, so they only fire it up four times a year. Check the website for dates, it's worth it!

A delightful and interesting visit to the past, take the children, be careful, watch local enthusiasts cut huge logs.

When this historic sawmill has an open house, volunteer history buffs fire up the old machines and saw large redwood trunks into wide boards. Watching the intricate process, you almost feel transported back in time to the days of pioneer lumbermen.

Monthly demonstrations of the lumber mill wit steam engine powered sawmill lathes and cutters. Demon stripping and making of boards from a redwood tree.

Stergons Mill was a steam powered sawmill that began operating in about 1913. It moved to the Greenhill Road location in 1923/4. It is NOT open all the time to the public. Only 4 weekends a year in Sept/Oct. Watch them produce lumber from logs!
