Historicial Development: Trinity River Lumber Company was very active in Montgomery County timber affairs during this period. One of its many operations was a sawmill at Conroe in 1907, which appeared in the listings of the Reference Book of the Lumbermen's Credit Association, January 1907. It may have bought or contracted a smaller operation already extant in Conroe.
