Klondike Sawmill

1205 S Van Buren St
Shipshewana, IN 46565

This mural odes to the Klondike Saw Mill, founded in 1864. The original mill was steam-powered and looked “something like an old locomotive.” Supposedly, the sawmill was first located south of where Shipshewana now stands, but the Farver brothers (Johnathan and William) moved their business into town when the railroad came and built a switch line back to the mill. Their lumberyard and sawmill were located on the east side of town where the town park is today.
