About Laurel, MS From the Web…
“From its oak-lined streets to its lovely, turn-of-the-century homes, Laurel is a charming and gracious southern town. Located in the southeast region of Mississippi known as the Pine Belt, the city of Laurel was originally established in 1882. It flourished during the growth of the timber industry just over a century ago. In 1893, a decade after the railroad opened the region for large-scale timber production, Eastman-Gardiner & Company opened the first giant lumber mill. The Eastman-Gardiner mill was soon followed by many others, making Laurel a very large milling town. By the early 1900’s, Laurel milled and shipped more yellow pine than anywhere else in the world.”
