Chapter 3: Life in Lumberland 1825 to 1831

The work of most people in the area was related in some way to lumbering. Each lumbering company had its small community of employees, most of whom lived in make-shift tenements, and some did not have a garden. But all received wages which left no surplus at the end of the year.
—John W. Johnston, Reminiscences.
