A family's lumber shanty
Lumber Shanties were small two room temporary houses for working families

Photo of lumber shanty

This is a lumber shanty much like the one Opal lived in. This photo shows some of the "mill folks" who live and work around the McKibben Mill. This shanty stood in the are Opal calls "the far woods" - near the mill.
