| Since the period of the 1880's, there has been a presence of the ancestors of Harris Benjamin who is the founder of Century 21 Benjamin Realty……Harris's Great uncle Abner Franklin was a Timber Scaler during the period of the heavy timbering of the area in and around the Rose City area in the 1870's and 1880's.
Harris was born in a small frame house on his Grandfather Ivan Nye's farm 2 miles North of Rose City in November of 1931, the son of Franklin and Genevieve Benjamin.
Following schooling and a four year term in the Military during the Korean War, Harris and his family returned to Rose City where Harris worked for his Father in what was then the "Benjamin Millworks" company which manufactured cabin logs, built cabinets, furniture, windows and doors. This subsequently became known as "Benjamin Mill and Lumber Company" and operated a lumber processing mill and later a Lumber yard and Hardware operations which Harris then acquired from his Father Frank, and during the tenure of which Harris obtained a license to list and sell Real Estate.
