Shaw Historical Library and Klamath County Museum -- Storytelling Event
The Shaw Historical Library and the Klamath County Museum will host a storytelling event — reminiscing the history and events of the mills around Upper Klamath Lake — at 1:00 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4 at the Klamath County Museum Main Hall, 1451 Main St, Klamath Falls.
Those who want to listen, as well as those who want to share a story, are invited to attend.
Ron Loveness will lead the discussion and give a brief introduction to lumber mills around Upper Klamath Lake. Coffee, lemonade and cookies will be furnished.
Lumber production in Klamath County evolved from a few scattered small mills to several larger mills located on the shores of Upper Klamath Lake. Advancements in transporting logs led to mills to being centralized closer to Klamath Falls
Klamath County was the largest producer of pine lumber in the nation. Local box factories and other re-manufacturing plants used the lumber to produce wood products ranging from ABC blocks, mouse trap stock, door and window sash, to molding.
