This is the story of a Wisconsin logging company, headquartered in Thunder Bay, who incorporated and built a railroad in Minnesota to harvest timber, and in the process created one of the most unique logging operations in North America. The railroad had no American terminus or connection; its only access was through Canada. The logs cut in Minnesota were transported to Port Arthur to be processed into lumber and were shipped to a burgeoning construction market in Canada and the United States.
All presentations are family friendly and free to the public, they will be held inside the Chik-Wauk Nature Center.
Donations are appreciated.
