Billed as the largest Cypress Mill in the world at the time, this artist's view of The F.B. Williams Cypress Company at Patterson, Louisiana appeared in AMERICAN LUMBERMAN in 1911.


Opened in 1906 by Cypress baron Frank B. Williams, it was responsible for producing 85 percent of the entire output of Louisiana Cypress.
