  • Chapter 11 Lumber
  • Hello, my name is Fredrick Weyerhaeuser. I am the father of the lumber industry. I started chopping trees in southern Minnesota and moved on to the pacific northwest. This is one of my original mill sites after getting a fresh coat of paint.
  • At the turn of the century mills were a cheap way to harnass the river's power. 
  • Workers are tasked with cutting, felling trees, hauling logs, and running logs down the river. Often a worker could drown or get crushed by a tree.
  • My workers, behind me, are hard at work chopping down trees. They need to work fast and be arare of their surroundings.
  • The lumber industry sends logs down the river to the mills in Minneapolis. The cut lumber then goes to people all over to build houses.
  • Log rafts on the Mississippi river annually went over 89 million feet.
  • By 1900 lumbermills produced 2.3 billion feet of lumber
  • My mill cuts logs and sends them into town to use for houses for immigransts, laborers and workers
  • In a single week in 1875, 141 rail cars of lumber were shipped across Minnesota.
  • My company uses trains to transport cut lumber to ALL Minnesota
  • Hello, I am a lumber mill worker. My job is to make sure the wood cuts correctly and keep the mill running smoothly.
  • All aboard. One large shipment of lumber to Minneapolis. No delay
