Lewis Miller, the man behind the Millertown venture that brought progress to the wilderness of central Newfoundland, was a story that started in Crief, Scotland. A successful venture in Sweden was in jeopardy of losing timber limits and the search for new opportunities was fueled by discussions with the Reid family, owners of the Newfoundland railway.
