Remembering: Weaversville — 70 years ago

Wednesday, July 8, 2020 by ED PANY Curator, Atlas Cement Company Memorial Museum in Columns

Today, we continue our youthful memories of Weaversville. We recall the Danner Saw Mill.

The mill was an open-air operation that operated until the cold winter season. There was no building.

Stanley Danner, the owner, and his wife resided in Northampton. Both Stanley and his wife worked together sawing both logs and firewood. The mill yard was always filled with logs to mill. One of the mill’s best customers was the Pennsylvania State Farm, which had a large farm in Weaversville.
