Timber Heritage Association
A group of individuals interested in preserving timber industry history formed the Northern Counties Logging and Interpretive Association, a non-profit corporation, in 1977. Activities of members centered around a logging exhibit at Fort Humboldt State Historic Park in Eureka. These individuals had urged the creation of the exhibit; they now wanted to develop and expand the effort as a Cooperating Association of the park unit. The organization restored a steam donkey, Bear Harbor Lumber Co. locomotive No. 1 and Elk River Mill & Lumber Co. locomotive No. 1 to operating condition, demonstrating them at “steam-ups” at the park and taking them on the road to logging conferences and railfairs as far away as Vancouver, Canada.

The name of the organization was changed to the Timber Heritage Association in 2004. While the Association continues to support the logging exhibit at Fort Humboldt State Historic Park, its activities are now much broader. Its mission is to develop a Timber Heritage Museum and create an excursion train around Humboldt Bay. Major steps to restore locomotives and obtain passenger cars have been undertaken.

With change comes new challenges. In 2006, the THA storage yard at Glendale was sold. Hundreds of thousands of tons of artifacts would have to be relocated. Board member Woody Murphy generously offered temporary storage on his property along the bay in Fields Landing. Part way through the move, through a variety of circumstances, a very historic site, the 115 year old former Hammond Lumber Company roundhouse and shops in Samoa became available for short term lease. Artifacts that had been protected under cover at the old storage yard were moved there. The six locomotives still remaining at Glendale will be moved to inside the roundhouse as soon as the contractor donating the move can work it into his schedule.

Washburn Logging & Lumbering
By the end of 1886 three huge mills take up the entire waterfront of the West End of Washburn. Great gaps in the forest have opened up and now a railroad is being built into the interior to facilitate the removal of forests that because of the lack of rivers could not feasibly be cut before. Within a few more years not a tree can be seen. Racing through the slashing left by loggers, huge forest fires burn what is left. Within twenty years of the city’s founding, most of the pine is gone. The mills remain running for a while, cutting Michigan and Minnesota pine that comes in great rafts of a million feet or more, but the end is in sight.

Hopefully this site will help one to understand the great logging industry that once existed in Washburn and Northern Bayfield County

Western Lumber Co. - Westfir, OR
Long before the SP's Cascade line was completed, the small town of Westfir (MP 582.7) was the location of a large lumber operation. Started as the Western Lumber Company, it later became the Westfir lumber company, and finally the Edward Hines Lumber Company. In 1966 the mill shipped nearly 2900 carloads of wood products via the SP!

Wisconsin Logging Railroads
The purpose of this page is to provide information on an often overlooked aspect of railroading. While not as thrilling as their western counterparts, logging railroads in the State of Wisconsin still hold much interest. After all, it is the state where both Frederick Weyerhauser and Edward Hines got their start. What I will attempt to do is to provide a master list of all Wisconsin logging railroads including basic information such as dates of operation, (when known) location, and guage.
