In 1968, Buck and Wayne Merritt opened the Merritt Brothers Lumber Company.  They purchased an old saw mill in Priest River, Idaho, and pumped life into it, and became quite successful.
 
 
Tragedy struck and that mill burnt down in 1972, however, they were able to rebuild that mill and continue to operate, all the while looking to grow into a bigger facility.
 
 
In 1990, the Merritt Bros. Lumber Company purchased a second mill site located in Athol.  They then proceeded to expand the Athol Facility and sold the Priest River Location.
 
Today the Merritt Brothers Lumber Company is still owned by the family and operated with the same values and integrity that they had back then, only ultilizing the latest technologies to help you get what you need with the most up to date information and personal customer service that most dont have anymore.
