Bay Mills branch

Wednesday, Jan. 14, 1891  Bay Mills Branch  The South Shore is now building a spur from the station of Bay Mills on its Soo division to Hall and Buell's mills on Waiskai Bay. The branch is two and a half miles long but it is remarkable for having 7,500 feet of trestle work on it all in one trestle too. The earthwork is about finished and the trestle is being pushed along as fast as possible as there is a big cut of logs near Seney which is to be delivered at the mill by rail this winter. The trestle is no such a formidable affair as its length would indicate, the water being very shallow. The branch strikes Waiskai Bay directly across from the mills and instead of following the deeply indented shore line across from the mills, which would necessitate a very much longer piece of track and some it it most expensive, cuts directly across. The logs will be run out on the trestle and then dumped off into the bay on the inshore side. Besides Hall and Buell's big lumber mills the place has a new industry about ready for a start in the shape of Hall and Munson's box factory, which will employ over 50 men.
