Come One - Come All!!!
PCHS Annual Meeting and Presentation
Presenting: North Woods Ingenuity and the Advent of the Modern Logging Industry.
- The Past 150 years has been a time of technological transformation of logging from human, animal, and steam power to the power of the internal combustion engine and hydraulics.
- What is striking about this transformation are the innovations and inventions by the loggers themselves.
- This year's Annual Meeting will feature a presentation by PCHS member Dale Heikkinen, of Prentice. Dale's father Leo Heikkinen, was instrumental in the development of the hydraulic knuckle-boom loader, now the essential piece of equipment on logging trucks you and I see almost daily traveling Highway 13.
