Bear Fork to be Timbered in 1909


Transcribed by Norma Shaffer from microfilm of Calhoun Chronicle dated 11/23/1909.

The Inter-State Cooperage Company is putting in mills at Rosedale, Braxton County, preparatory to manufacturing the oak timber on the Bennett heirs' land in Gilmer, Calhoun, and Braxton counties.  The erection of the mills are causing the construction of a railroad from Frametown, which is giving Rosedale and vicinity quite a boom.  The Inter-State Cooperage Company is a Standard concern, and acquired the property mentioned several years ago.  It is the opinion that they will construct the Railroad on through the property to the Little Kanawha, in order that they can get out their cooperage stuff by boat.-Parkersburg Sentinel.
