Lumber Mill

JSDH article page 166
Building materials were vital to the growth of National City. One of Frank Kimball's early enterprises was a lumber yard near his wharf on the bayfront that unloaded regular shipments of redwood and pine brought by ships from San Francisco. Later, his sister's son Charles Walter Copeland managed the Homeland Building Company downtown between 8th and 9th Streets. Lumber yards today in the Marine Industrial Park continue the work started by Kimball in 1868.
