As this web editor talks to former Blagen Mill employees, they seem to always speak of Ed Adams as a man and mill superintendent they liked and respected. We’re fortunate to have gotten a lot of history and photos of Ed and his family. In addition to the photos, I’ve included text that gives us more insight into the history.
Ed’s father, Abe, was a railroad engineer at Sugar Pine Mills near Oakhurst which is where Ed probably learned the lumber mill business.
Ed had an uncle, Frank Adams, who may have worked at Blagen Mill as well. One of our exhibits includes a photograph in which a Frank Adams is identified.

Note about Ed’s father.
Mill closed in 1962, so Ed was somewhere else after that.
