White Mountain Lumber
White Mountain Lumber was started in 1945 when Emmet J. Kelley and Arthur Napert joined forces and purchased the assets of a bankrupt sawmill. In 1994, changes in the local market place saw an opportunity to enter the retail building materials business. Over the next 25 years, they built a new retail store and built one of the largest drive-through lumber yards in the state.
Today the sawmill has customers in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and Rhode Island; and the retail operation caters to customers in Coos, Grafton and Carroll counties of New Hampshire.
