The 1875 Isler county map showed the steam sawmill of J. W. Jump and Co. on the southeast edge of Ridgely in 1875. The steam sawmill of T. L. Day was listed at Ridgely in the 1887 State business directory. In 1888, the firm of T. L. Day Sawing Company was established to make 700,000 canned goods crates and berry boxes per annum (The Founding of Ridgely, p. 77f).
