In my art studio, there is a closet in which I store items that never made the museum’s displays. There is a box in which I put interesting historical articles, newspaper clippings, museum founder’s writings, etc. It is in this box I look for things to include in this web page’s History Gem update.
While I was looking through the box today, I found an article about the early logging days in Michigan. The first few paragraphs offer a review, after which there are interesting and amazing facts about Michigan’s logging history.
