This sturdy industrial building housed a sawmill for cutting and shaping ship timbers and planks, and a joiner shop for the finer woodworking that went into vessels' cabins, deckhouses, railings, and interiors.

In 1909, the shed addition on the north side provided more lumber storage and a place for the schooners' small boats to be built.

[Background photo caption reads]
The mill's lumber ramp and interior can be seen under the bowsprit of the 4-masted schooner Florence M. Penley, launched in 1903.
