Leafing through the last Heritage magazine of the Okanogan County Historical Society, I noticed that a sawmill was being moved from Lakeside on Lake Chelan to the Methow Valley in 1906.

H.R. Kingman was one of the owners selling the mill, it said. That happened to be my wife’s grandfather, who with his brother Morrison came to the lake in the late 1880’s. Herb was a boat builder, a carpenter who left his mark in that town with many residences, and the Ruby Theater.
