Named after the Saw Mill that was established by brothers Guy and Virgil Covington, who came to the area near Trinity Center from the Washington State area in the late 1800s. In the 1950s when Disneyland was being constructed, much of the wood was milled here in Trinity to build the Magic Kingdom.. Many worker and family cabins survive today from the turn of the century.
