Friends of Blackwater have a brand new set of signs currently standing in Davis City Park near the pavilion, uses historic photos and maps to show the evolution of the sawmill complex that sat between the Blackwater River and the Town.
The original plan was for Emmie, Cheyenne, and I to dig up all the holes and place the signs in by ourselves. However, after one sign took a total of two days to dig, we decided to have assistance: Scott Dearborn, who worked on the deconstruction of the dilapidated motel, loaned us his auger to use.
Here are some close-ups of each individual sign:
Additionally, here is the press release that we sent out to the Parsons Advocate.
