|The ruins of Livermore...|
Along Sawyer River Road can be seen many ruins offset into the woods, which marks the remains of the town. High above the road can be found several stone foundations, and many rusted artifacts that lay just below the leaves. It's hard to imagine that houses once stood here.

Just below can be found the sawmill, which is now just a pile of mossy bricks. The floors have rotted through, exposing the rugged grounds beneath. The foundation has begun to crumble, and only one wall still stands.
|This is all that's left...|
Right beside the brick foundation can be found the rest of the mill, which can be located by following a series of cement footings. The foundation is much easier to follow here, and many rusted oil drums and pipes can be found scattered throughout the base.

Sawyer River is a short walk from here, as it flows right below the foundation. As we walked along the river, we found numerous artifacts, and the sites of many old bridges and the railroad tracks. Up the road a bit further is another cement foundation, which has held up better than the rest.

With the sky giving way to rain, and the air beginning to cool down, it was time to head out. There is much left to explore here, but with summer coming, many of the ruins will be hidden under ferns and under growth for the next few months, making it hard to navigate the area. Who knows what can be lying right beneath the ground.
