Location: Alpena, MI - Albert Pack Mill

The Albert Pack Saw Mill and Lumber Yard was located on the Thunder Bay River in Alpena, at West Third Street, north of N. River. This was downtown, across the river from what was the D&M freight house.


1893. Albert Pack has a force of men grading the land back of his mill wharf, and the work is nearly completed. A railroad track will be laid to extend to the DBC&A road and thus connect with the new Alpena & Northwestern [sic]. The spur to the mill (along the west side of the Thunder Bay River from the D&M main line) is to enable pine logs for Mr. Pack to be brought on cars from his extensive pineries in Presque Isle county to his mill, and 1,500,000 feet will be brought here this winter. Next summer about 2,500,000 feet will come the same way. The logs go direct from the cars to the mill boom. [AArgus-1893-1122]
