The Jordan River Lumber Company was incorporated in South Dakota in January 1913, and domiciled at Kiln, Hancock County, MS. In January 1913, the company purchased the mill of W. W. Carre Company, Ltd., at Kiln, on the Jourdon River. The original mill burned and was replaced in 1914 with a new mill with a cutting capacity of 150,000 feet per day. In 1922, the mills in Kiln and Lumberton were consolidated at Barth, MS, the division point on the Mississippi Southern. In February 1930, the mill cut out and was dismantled.
