Digging Up The Timber Industry's Past
The region is still home to a busy timber industry.
Today's industry owes much to the loggers and millworkers of the past, and that's a rich history. A history that even includes archaeological digs.
Like the one in Lake County, at the site of the long-defunct Crooked Creek mill camp.
The U.S. Forest Service's "Passport in Time" project brings professional and amateur archaeologists together for research, and the process took place at the Crooked Creek site.
Forest Service workers join us to talk about the site's significance and exploration.
