In the Beginning:
There was bush! In 1864, the first settlers came to Haliburton and settled on this piece of land first because of the river. A series of mills were on the site over the years until W.O. Bailey constructed a veneer mill in 1945. His daugher Lois married Wm. (Bill) Emmerson in 1953 and the Emmerson Lumber legacy was started in 1957.
The Growing Years:
We have complimentary books entitled "The Mill Reserve" that gives a history of the company. From humble beginnings, the company now employs 36 people and has a Rent-All department. We celebrated our 50th anniversary in 2007 and we had a replica of our first delivery truck on display. You can even download a .pdf file of the book (33 pages) if you wish. Great for history buffs !
Where we're going:
With a keen interest in keeping abreast of building practice changes and technology, we have been able to keep to the forefront in the building business.In 2015, we acquired a second location in Carnarvon, Ontario to serve you better !
Thank you for taking interest in our business!
