The Great Hurricane of 1938 devastated New England's forests. As a result, Turkey Pond
was used to store almost 12 million board
feet of salvaged white pine logs, more than
anywhere in New England. From 1941 to 1943.
the H. S. Durant mill, operating on this site,
sawed most of the volume floating in Turkey
Pond. On the pond's north side, the U. S. Forest
Service constructed a sawmill that was
operated by a group of local women. Led by
sawfiler Laura Willey, the women proved
themselves to be an exemplary crew. "Snow,
rain, or sub-zero weather never slowed them
up," wrote one Forest Service manager.
