LUMBER COMPANY IS RUSHING BIG PLANT
Tacoma Daily Ledger August 11, 1907 (p. 16)
Salsich Project at Nisqually to Be in Operation by Next April.
Construction work upon the big sawmill and townsite on the Nisqually, the projects of the Salsich Lumber company, is progressing rapidly. Members of the company that the big mill will probably be in operation state it by April 1.
As a foundation for the mill, a concrete floor covering forty acres has been laid. A small mill has been built and is cutting out the timbers and framework to be used in the construction of the big plant. Machinery for the mill has been ordered, and the contracts for this material call for its delivery about January 1.
The site of the mill is about 600 feet east of the bridge across the Nisqually on the county road from Tacoma to Olympia.
Large forces of men are being employed in clearing the townsite to be platted near the mill. Streets are to be constructed and over 100 houses erected.
H. E. Salsich, the Wisconsin man who is president of the lumber company, is now in Tacoma giving personal attention to the work at Nisqually. He states that plans for power, street railway and other propositions have not been fully matured.
