Horse Logging in the Clearwater

Thursday, December 3, 2020

Once the timber barons learned of the finest low elevation white pine forest in the nation, the race to the land office was on to claim their share. It began with the state timber sales on the Palouse River and a saw mill at Potlatch that soon moved on to the North Fork of the Clearwater River and a mill at Elk River that evolved into the saw mill at Lewiston. That is when the serious logging began with horses and cross-cut saws, flumes, trains and log drives, carried out by tough old-country lumber jacks who made it all work.
