History by Gil Hoffman:

The Pine Hill Lumber Company was originally a partnership composed of W. F. Tibbetts, L. A. Tibbetts and J. M. Caldwell. The company began buying timber near Wautubbee, Clarke County in August 1902. A sawmill was built at Wautubbee which included a planing mill and dry kilns. On August 20, 1907, The Pine Hill Lumber Company was incorporated at Wautubbee by H. B. McGarrah, of Reynoldsville, PA, and James O. Craig, of Sligo, PA, with authorized capital stock of $30,000. H. B. McGarrah was president and F. D. Smith, secretary.

On April 23, 1910, the sawmill and timber holdings were sold to J. M. Broach and W. O. Chipman, of Meridian, Lauderdale County, who operated the property as the B. C. Lumber Company.
