J.H. Huscroft

Creston, BC

In 1927 John Henry Huscroft and his oldest son Elmer started their first sawmill on the Huscroft farm, sawing railroad ties for the Great Northern Railroad, beginning the work that J.H. Huscroft Ltd. continues today. The portable sawmill moved from the farm to Boundary Creek, where it sawed timber for fruit boxes, and then on to Dodge Creek, where it burned own in 1960 only to be rebuilt in the Creston Valley at its current location. J.H. Huscroft Ltd. has been steadily expanding its operations ever since, thanks to the dedication and imagination of its generations of employees and contractors.
