There are more Sugar Valley locations in Georgia than anywhere else, but there are also at least one in Texas, Ohio, and Tennessee.

As Chicago grew, Michigan became deforested and grayling became extinct. The companies that lumbered Michigan came there after lumbering parts of New York State. Some areas of New York presented difficult harvesting conditions for lumber companies. When they were done in Michigan, they returned to New York to resume lumbering.



Back in those days, towns focusing on timber harvesting were almost like the Wild West.

Lumberjacks lived in work camps and periodically came to town to "raise hell".
