We're Number One!1187 viewsIn 1856 there were nine mills on Humboldt Bay and they were producing more lumber than anyplace else on the coast. Eureka soon had the most "extensive lumber district in the state" according to a state report. Loggers and lumbermen were a creative bunch as evidenced by the numerous inventions locally that advanced logging technology. One such local inventor was John Dolbeer of the Dolbeer and Carson Lumber Company. His adaptation and patent of the steam donkey revolutionized logging on the entire west coast and beyond. His first donkey was patented in April 1882 and an "improved logging machine," the vertical spool donkey, in December of 1883. He also patented a logging locomotive at the same time. Fort Humboldt's Elk River & Lumber Co. No. 1 is a Dolbeer locomotive as is Bear Harbor No. 1. They are the only two that still exist.
