    Manley-Moore Lumber Company was in business from ca. 1910 to ca. 1934, first in Arline and then in Fairfax. In about 1900 Orville Biggs built a sawmill at Arline. Robert D. Moore partnered with J.E. Manley and August Von Boecklin, and the Manley-Moore Lumber Company bought Arline Mills in 1907 and operated there until about 1910, selling out to Merrick-Robb Lumber Co. In 1909 the Manley-Moore Lumber Company moved its operations to a tract of old growth timber east of Fairfax in eastern Pierce County. The company built a large sawmill, a lumber yard, and buildings for workers on the south side of the Carbon River, and the town was named Manley-Moore. The plant operated until the early 1930s when it was closed. Manley-Moore had many outstanding debts and were forced to sell the company to a Mr. Gailbraith from the Eatonville Lumber Company. less
