How do you move millions of logs harvested from the forests of northern Minnesota and Wisconsin? Rely on a river. From 1839 to 1914, the St. Croix was a crucial link between logging areas and markets.

Arcola witnessed this great movement of timber. Each spring, the river swelled with pine, isolating the village as boat traffic came to a standstill. Workers focused on pulling logs off the St. Croix to cut at the Arcola mill. The rest of the timber floated another four miles downstream to the St. Croix Boom-the main processing point for sorting, measuring, and determining ownership. From there, logs were transported to Stillwater mills or fashioned into rafts and sent south to Iowa, Illinois and Missouri.
