Camp and crew / Patten Lumbermen's Museum

Chapter 7, page 194-195.

The crew of a lumbering operation outside of their camp, circa 1900.

Getting lumber from the forest to the sawmil was an extensive process, that began with setting up a logging camp in timber land.

Logging season began in October and would extend through the spring. Loggers depended on icy roads in winter and flooded rivers in the spring to transport timber to sawmills.
