Although the sawmill has been around since the 40s, the mill became known as Hall Family Saw Mill when Richard Hall purchased it in 1979.
Working side by side with Richard Hall were his step sons, Jim Gabrick, Mike Brigham, and Mark Gabrick, whom as young men, learned the business of running a sawmill. Today, Lake Ann Hardwood is owned and operated by Mike Brigham and Mark Gabrick. Together as partners, Mike and Mark have broadened the business with equipment additions, facility expansions, and product enhancements.
