Description
Photograph shows an ink drawn illustration by Will Taylor. Published in Sierra Flume and Lumber Company of California, Taylor , compiled/descriptive text by W.H. Hutchinson. Written on illustration/photographs, The Champion Mill, at what is now called 'Old Lyonsville', was built by Sierra Flume and Lumber Co. Called 'Champion #2' to distinguish it from the original Champion Mill which lay some six miles southwest of Lyonsville near Yellow Jack Valley. When first built, in 1876/77, was a steam mill with 2 circular saws rated at 30 M. feet per ten hour day. It's cut was flumed to Sesma thru connection with the existing flume from Belle Mill. Champion Mill occupied this site from 1876 until 1913 when the last one by this name was dismantled by Diamond Match Company.
