& Hudson's Mill
NYE, LUSK & HUDSON'S MILL AT EIDSVOLD, THORP TOWNSHIP, CLARK CO., WI
The mill is one of the three which the firm of Nye, Lusk, & Hudson own and operates in this locality. They are all-similar to each other and are among the largest mills in this region. Its capacity is 50,000 feet per day. It has a shingle mill and planing mill attached. A very large number of men are steadily employed in operating the mill. The firm is quite extensively interested in real estate and owns about 5,000 acres of pin and hardwood lands in the towns of Withee and Thorp, which they sell very cheap and on easy terms. The firm was instrumental in procuring the location of the York coal kilns at Thorp and they furnish the York coal company with about 25,000 cords of wood annually, and in this manner give employment to a large additional number of men. The mill which the cut below represents has only been in operation about three years. The photograph from which the engraving was made was taken at a long distance from the mill and gives but an indistinct idea of its size.
