For years, when I took the state road instead of the highway to my former job in Concord, NH, I’d pass by the back of Wilkins Lumber in Milford, NH. I could see a smokestack and some old red buildings. Now seems like a good time to check out things that I’ve been meaning to explore provided that it allows me to keep a social distance from others. I drove there today and parked next to Hartshorn Pond. A brook of the same name flows out over a dam (a future post) and then steeply down to the mill. The driveway to the mill was located on the other side of the property. After passing an old trailer that serves as the lumber mill’s sign (pictured above), I came to a spot where the slope to walk directly from the road to the mill wasn’t so steep. I hiked down it and found myself inside a cluster of buildings. Here you can see a smokestack standing alone next to a building whose purpose I’m not quite sure. The B&W image shows the mill itself. Look at the post and beam work. You can see the brook flowed under the mill presumably to power it back in the day when water power was the way to go. The other shot is a piece of milling equipment that I believe is a planer. Today, there is a modern power box on the wall next to it. It was a fun shoot that was in the back of my mind for a long time. What shoots have you been meaning to get to?
