Twin City Milling Co.

Webb City Area Genealogical Society

Webb City and Carterville were known as twin cities, which is likely how this mine was named. And it was probably located between the two cities.

Among the things we notice about the picture is “Daddy” with an arrow pointing up to one of the workers from the bottom of the frame. There’s a daddy or grandpa with two children in the background.

The horse and buggy, along with the style of the frame are clues that the photo was taken circa 1900 to 1910.

Sentinel bound volumes are now in the Genealogy Room

The WCAGS has accepted ownership of the complete collection of bound volumes of the Webb City Sentinel, from 1983 (after the fire) until the final issue on Dec. 30, 2020.

Those issues can also be viewed on microfilm, along with much older issues.
