Northwood Adventure: Christmas in the Logging Camp
It’s been a tradition for years at the Forest History Center. Christmas in the logging camp is a way to take guests back in time to the 1900’s era where the demand for white pines made jobs for the men in Northern Minnesota during the winter time.
Here at the Forest History Centers Christmas in the Logging Camp, is an interpretation of the early years as immigration increased and the demand for lumber in expanding populations was insatiable.
They called it from can see to can’t see that the lumberjacks would work throughout the day to produce the amount of lumber needed for their winter job.
But here on this medium sized logging camp, hosting about 70 lumberjacks, was an internal support system to help the men get the job done.
And if they could gather their amount in less than 120 days the profit would increase, but that’s if the weather held up.
