Four C Ruins

Today these ruins of an old sawmill still stand near Ratcliff in Davy Crockett National Forest. Milling declined here due to a struggle between the Four C Company and local merchants in Ratcliff. The Four C Company built a sixteen foot wall between the mill and Ratcliff to prevent workers from purchasing cheaper goods in town, rather than at the company store. The wall was dynamited and after much conflict, the company decided to move its operations.
