“The End of Something” begins with a description of Horton Bay, Michigan, a town that exists because of the lumber industry. Once the logs disappear, the lumber mill does too, taking away “everything that had made… Hortons Bay a town.” [3] By the time of the story, the town is deserted, and only the white limestone foundation of the mill is left.
