Gunflint & Lake Superior Railroad: Logging the Boundary Waters at the Turn of the Century by Dave Battistel

Date: July 23, 2017

Time: 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm

Location: Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center

Event Description

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.
