Description: A sawmill, built in 1872, marked the beginning of the forest industry in eastern Washington -- almost half a century after the emergence of the lumber industry in western Washington. Since then, this industry has increased in importance to eastern Washington's economy, now furnishing about one-fifth of the total manufacturing employment and wages paidin some counties and many communities, it is the major source of employment and wages. In 1962, various forest products firms paid about $43 million in wages to more than 8,000 employees (Washington Employment Security Department 1963).
