Hi I am joe! I will tell you about the lumber industry. Also I will show you what the men worked on.
This is Carter ! He cuts down the trees and he works very hard! he wants to tell you what they do!
Hi! I wake up at 4 in the morning every day. I go to eat and then i go straight to work so I can get cutting.
This is where the horses and ox bring the logs to the river. then people would the logs on the river
This is where the workers brought the logs to the river in the winter. The water would freeze than they would put the logs on the river . After they would wait for the water melt and the logs went down to Taylor falls.
The logs arrive at Taylor Falls then they would go up the log shoots. They make it up and then they go right in the saw mill where they would be cut in pieces.
Fun fact Minnesota had the biggest flour, lumber, and iron industry in the world!
When all of the wood was cut it would in to different pieces it be shipped to different places around the world.
