The Aultman and Taylor Saw Mill has been demonstrated at the Steam Show since 1968. The Sawyer of the mill is John Ross, whose father was the previous owner of the mill. The saw mill illustrates how America was built in the early 1900’s. Using a saw mill, lumber could be cut quickly, which meant buildings could be erected faster. Each year for the show people donate logs for the mill to demonstrate cutting. THe will cut the log to the donors specifications so they can use it for their own projects. The mill also cuts lengths of wood to repair and maintain the building that it is housed in.
