NW Washington Logging – The Past in Picture and Stories

with Eric Erickson


This class will delve into the details of logging from the past: loggers, transportation, and lumber mills in Washington. Highlighted will be the unique all-wheel drive locomotives used for transportation to and from logging camps, the lives of a logger – tools/clothes/camps, and various types of mills (saw, shingle, hoop and shake). Eric will share his vast collection of old photos, historic implements, and stories related to the early twentieth century of logging in the Pacific Northwest.
