Lumbering in the Saginaw Valley




In the mid 1800's, Saginaw experienced a lumber boom thanks to the natural resources of the Great Lakes State. The products created from the forests of northern Michigan were needed to support the growing nation. After the trees were cut, many of the logs were floated down the waterways which converged to form the Saginaw River. By the mid 1870's, Saginaw was known as the Lumber Capital of the World. In 1882, Saginaw's lumber production was at it's peak with 1,001,274,905 board feet of lumber cut in mills along the Saginaw River. The river was the essential ingredient to get the trees from the forests to the mills, and to ship the finished product from the mills to the suppliers.
