Description:
Capt. Josiah P. Keller, of East Machias, Maine, was a founder of the Puget Mill Company. He sailed on the Julius Pringle from San Francisco to Puget Sound where he chose Port Gamble as a site for the mill. Keller became superintendent of the mill and in 1853 moved his family to Port Gamble.
Abstract:
This collection documents the establishment and early years of the Puget Mill Company, which manufactured lumber. The bulk of the papers are letters from Josiah Keller to his partner, Charles Foster. They discuss building plans, business development, ships and cargoes, and accounts. There are occasional mentions of Keller's personal affairs and one letter describes his voyage around Cape Horn in the schooner L. P. Foster. Two charts show Hood's Canal, the harbor, and location of the mill.
