History of Whiting Lumber
June 25, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Whiting Lumber Company was the first major lumber operation in Graham County, harvesting an amazing stand of virgin timber. Imagine a cherry tree ten feet across and seventy feet high. Whiting’s operation included a total of 13 mills and flooring plants stretching from Judson, N.C. to southern Virginia.
Michael Lowery, great-grandson of William S. Whiting and family historian of the Whiting family, will visit Robbinsville on June 25th to present the story of Whiting and the history of Whiting Lumber operations in Graham County and surrounding areas.
Local historians will be on hand for additions and corrections, as history is alive with new research, new attic finds, and new information coming to light. Please join us on Monday, June 25 from 6-8 PM at the Library.
