Saturday, August 12
Cable Community Center
Dick Rewalt, from the Mason Area Historical Society will present the findings of ongoing research studies in the White River basin. The White River basin is a unique site where 1880’s logging “improvements” remain as tell-tale relics. These relics offer the opportunity to document the untold details of how 3 and 4 foot diameter logs were moved down the shallow upper reaches of the White River headwaters. Specifically, the talk will detail unique early logging methods, the engineering used to harness the shallow northern rivers for log transport. This presentation provides details found in the early documentation, period pictures, recorded resident’s forensic analysis of aerial imagery and current field imagery.
Social time, with coffee and sweets, beginning at 9:30 a.m.
Annual Board Meeting begins at 11:00 a.m.
