Shoreline

        Where we now stand on Lowell Park there once was a booming logging industry.  The shores were controlled by the various mills waiting to cut the logs that floated down the river.  Logs were piled multiple layers thick in alternating directions as you can see underneath these lumberjacks.  Catch markers would sort out the logs according to their stamps at the boom site and at Stillwater, where the St. Croix widens to create a place for the logs to be stored, you could walk across the river without getting wet.
