Listen to the legends and stories that made the lumberjack a national hero, then experience what life was really like in a lumber camp. Lumber built Clinton, not just the buildings and barns, but it fathered the industry that brought the railroad, the immigrants, and the entrepreneurs.
Hear the buzz from the sawmill as logs are cut into the lumber and envision the workings of the Struve Mill where hundreds of pieces of wood became beautiful trims, doors and ooring.
Catch a glimpse of a worker’s life or entertain with the millionaire’s family as you visit “Clinton, the Lumber Capital of the World” and other exhibits at the Sawmill Museum. Located in the Lyons District. thesawmillmuseum.org
