Northwest Magnesite Plant at Chewelah

"Once said to be the greatest producer in Stevens County, and at full production has been said the largest producer of magnesite in the world. Capitalist W.H. Crocker said this plant was producing 75% of the magnesite used in the nation. The plant operated from 1916 to 1968." (Pauline Battien and the Washington State Historical Society)
