First a bit about the Garcia River. The Mexican-American named Garcia River is a river on the northern coast of California in southern Mendocino County. It is named for the settler Rafael Garcia who was granted ownership of the land in 1844. The river provides recreation, agricultural and industrial water supply for Point Arena. Logging in the area began in the 19th century.
I know there was a mill on the river but, heretofore, have never seen a pic of it. So, this one is as rare as hen’s teeth. Click on the pic to enlarge and read the text at the bottom.
