In 1946, John H. Ball got into the lumber business in King and Queen County, VA. He bought a sawmill, 4 mules, 2 horses, and a truck for $3,000. “And it took me three years to pay off that $3000”, Mr. Ball said, remembering how in those days most of the lumber was sold for railroad cross ties. Today, Ball Lumber Company has over 75 full-time employees including three generations of the Ball family members cutting trees, overseeing the mill, and transporting lumber.
