Welcome Sign Former Councilman Brian Calhoun while working on the general plan for Pinedale wanted to do something special, something that would define Pinedale. Pinedale soon became a Historical Community. After speaking with our local historian David Rodriguez they came up with a picture of the lead engine, “The Pinedale Special” from the Sugar Pine Lumber Mill. The Pinedale Special 108 car load of lumber left the Sugar Pine Lumber Mill and delivered was delivered to Chicago. Check out more on the “History of Pinedale” link.
