Graeagle, a small village in Plumas County, California, began as a mill town years ago. Timber from the surrounding forests were brought to the Graeagle sawmill. The whole town was owned by the sawmill company which provided cottages for their workers, as well as the nicer homes for managment personnel. All were uniformly painted red with white trim. The sawmill is gone, the town has retained the distinctive red cottages nestled among the tall pines and it looks like a picture postcard.
