Here is a photo of the Cherry River Boom & Lumber Co. A view from the South Side of Richwood. I would guess in the 50's.
The town’s former Georgia-Pacific sawmill was sold to the Cherry River Boom and Lumber Company which began operations here in 1900. Henry W. Armstrong, became general superintendent of the Cherry River Boom & Lumber Company at Richwood and Gauley Mills, Nicholas County. submitted by: Paul Greathouse
