This year’s ATHS CCC Truck show will feature live operation of the steam powered sawmill on the Amador County Fairgrounds.

The authentic 19th century sawmill is run by the powerful 1907 Corliss single cylinder steam engine with a 7 ft. flywheel, and will turn giant logs into useful boards as they pass through the 48” circular blade.

The 1890 Smith & Sayer steam engine will again come to life to drive the sawdust removal conveyor. Watch the sawmill crew muscle a huge log onto the carriage that moves it through the 48” saw blade. Watch as the Sawyer communicates with hand signals to direct the efforts of setters and off-bearers. Take a look in the Engine Room and be hypnotized by the rhythmic machinery huffing and puffing, turning steam into 60 horse power.

According to Bill Braun, President of the Amador Sawmill & Mining Association (ASMA),

Fulfilling our mission to restore and demonstrate historic equipment is fun, but
more important is our increased ability to educate young people about their American heritage.

By recreating a live 19th century Sawmill, we provide a glimpse into Amador County history and one of the three traditional industries here, Logging, Mining, and Agriculture.

The Amador Sawmill is one of the last operational steam powered sawmills in California. The sawmill is operated by ASMA, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization supplying rough-cut lumber and timbers for projects that require time-period saw marks for their restoration.

The sawmill is a living history museum using turn of the century (1890-1910) steam power operated by volunteers.

The Amador Sawmill’s mission is preservation and education by acquiring,
restoring and preserving authentic historic working sawmill equipment,
and to provide Public education through display and demonstration
