2016- "John Hein and his son Anthony operated two stave and heading mills and a sawmill. John also operated the Hein Dry Goods and Grocery Store located at the southern most point of the Hein's Hewett Street property. Success enabled the construction of a Quenn Anne style house. Its beautiful Eastlake detailing appears in ornate brackets, which support cornice lines and porch frieze spindling. His stave and heading mill burned in 1893 and as the logging industry began to wind down in the area, he closed Heintown mill in 1897 and moved out of the area."
