    Name: Pitch Pine Pete: The Lumberjack Story
    Date: October 15, 2018
    Time: 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    Join us as Roger Elkins, Pitch Pine Pete, shares the story of the rich history of logging on the Muskegon River. The Muskegon River served as the superhighway for logging drops until the late 1800s. Muskegon was the original mill town and shipping point for lumber from the river basin. In 1850, Delos Blodgett and Tom Stimson paddled up the Muskegon River to Osceola and Clare counties. In the spring of 1851, his first "log drive" traveled to Muskegon. 
    Other innovations from this Area include improve logging tools, Shay locomotive, and Big Wheels. After the pine was mostly depleted, hardwoods contributed to the manufacture of furniture, flooring, and other wood products. Michigan lumber was often referred to as "green gold" since its value exceeded the value of "all the gold in California."
    Be sure to check out the logging exhibit located at the Remus Historical Museum and Binney Auto Parts' front window.
