In 1853, Samuel F. Weston and
David Robinson accompanied by some other men, came from Maine and located at
what has since been known as Weston’s Rapids, along the Black River, two miles
above Neillsville. They commenced running logs down the river and thus became
the first local loggers in Clark County independent of the local mills. Previous
loggers had their own saw mills or used the services of a neighboring mill. A
mill yard and log-way reserve was set-up on the west river bank.
Messrs. Muir & Nelson, of the Town of Weston, are manufacturing
everything in the line of coopers’ wares, which they offer to the
trade in Clark and adjoining counties for very liberal prices. They
have on hand the finest lot of pork barrels ever manufactured in the
county, specimens of which can be seen at Dickinson’s store, in this
village, where terms, prices and all desired information relating
thereto may be obtained.
