An overall view of the old Cheney Grant sawmill complex. Sawmilling at this location began in 1930 when Harry Horr relocated his sawmill to here from Cayton Valley. The sawmill was taken over by the Cheney-Grant Lumber Company in the 1940's. The sawmill remained active until 1978 or 1979, when it was purchased by Louisiana Pacific and closed.
