Storyboard Text

  • Frederick Weyerhauser developed a company to log the forests and turn trees into lumber for houses and buildings.
  • The Moose River logging camp was 28 miles north of Aitkin, in Minnesota.
  • The logging camp had buildings for sleeping, cooking, a small office and a stable.
  • Undercutters notched the trees, sawyers cut the trees down. They were measured and cut into logs and piled up over the winter, until they could be moved down river in the Spring.
  • In the Spring, men guided the logs down the Mississippi River to the sawmill near Minneapolis.
  • The log drive took place during the long days of May and June and took about a month. The logs were moved down the Mississippi until they reached the sawmill at St. Anthony Falls.
