In 1921, a visionary named Edward J. Pardini Sr. co-founded Hills Flat Lumber Co., an enterprise that would soon become a leading wholesale lumber mill. With a keen sense of the community's needs, the company expanded to three mills, fulfilling the growing demand for lumber in the region. Hills Flat Lumber Co. played a vital role in the construction of new homes and the restoration of historic Victorian buildings, while also supplying high-quality lumber for water and irrigation flumes across Nevada County. The local gold mines also relied on Hills Flat Lumber's sturdy materials to shore up the tunnels and protect the miners from tons of rock and soil overhead, a testament to the company's unwavering commitment to quality and safety.

In the 1950s, the Hills Flat Lumber Co. mills were sold, and Edward J. Pardini Sr. diversified the family business to include hardware, building materials, and rentals. And thus began the legacy of the Pardini family, who have owned and operated Hills Flat Lumber Co. for three generations, upholding Edward J. Pardini's vision of superior service and exceptional building materials.

Today, Hills Flat Lumber Co. stands as a testament to that vision, with two locations and a wide range of offerings.
