The California Gold Rush of 1849 and San Francisco's Earthquake of 1906 spurred expansion, rebuilding and extensive timber processing in California.

Sturgeons Mill is a fine example of 1800's steam powered technology, providing lumber for early California's economy.

In 1913 Wade Sturgeon purchased saw mill equipment dating from the 19th century, and set up a saw mill in Coleman Valley.

In 1923 Wade and partners, John Gonnella, Joe Donati, along with Wade's sons Ralph and Merl, moved the mill to this location.

In 1943 the mill was purchased by Ralph Sonoma Sturgeon and his long time friend James Eijner Henningsen and operated until 1963.

Honored are Sturgeons Mill restoration project volunteers for their commitment to California's lumber history.
