The C.D. Johnson Lumber Company was established in 1922 as a subsidiary of the Pacific Spruce Corporation. In 1920, the Pacific Spruce Corporation acquired all the holdings of the United States Spruce Production Corporation, which had supplied high quality spruce wood for airplane production during World War I. At one time, the C.D. Johnson Mill was the largest spruce mill in the world. In 1951, after the deaths of several of the company's executives, the mill was acquired by the Georgia-Pacific Corporation.
