BRADFORD COUNTY, Pa. — “I’m glad that we have it back to where we can keep people employed to keep working here and to keep our family together,” said Shannon Fitzgerald, C.C. Allis and Sons Co-Owner. For Shannon Fitzgerald, a few charred beams are all that remain as her family’s business works to rebuild its decades-old sawmill, which burned to the ground in an accidental fire last spring. Now the mill is well on its way to being rebuilt. Camp says all thanks to community support. “It’s been here all their lives, so they’ve actually wanted to see it come back, and people just wanted it in general to come back because it was so used to being here in the community.” Camp and Fitzgerald expect the project to be completed sometime in June. Then, they can return to supplying the many who have helped keep them in business for more than two centuries.
