After losing his wife in 1902, Henry Neff Anderson purchased 10,000 acres of redwood forest in northern California. He built not only a lumber mill but a small community named after him to house the almost 200 employees he recruited.
Unfortunately, Henry died at Andersonia in 1905 following a mill accident. Litigation following his death caused sawmill operation to cease and an earthquake the following year scuppered the chances of the mill being sold to a new owner. Andersonia became a ghost town.
