The Island Cedar Company started operations at Scammon Cove in 1883. In 1890 the mill was taken over by H.C. Johnson Co. In 1902 Finnish workers were recruited for a settlement on Drummond Island in the Scammon Cove area. In 1916 Charles Wood, a piano key manufacturer bought the mill and renamed it Kreetan Company. The name of the post office was changed to Johnswood in honor of the two lumber company presidents. Johnswood had a company store, theater with silent films, a boarding house, a school, a clubhouse and a small hospital and doctor's house. Long story short, fire and a decline of the lumber market shut the mill down in 1925. The town was dismantled. Only two buildings remain.
