PICKEREL LANDING VILLAGE
| NAME: PICKEREL
CLIMATE: Snow in winter
BEST TIME TO VISIT: Spring summer or fall
REMAINS: A number of early buildings still remain including several dwellings and a boarding house.
| With the arrival of the railways,
a new wave of logging swept the north. Unlike the shoreline sawmill towns,
the trackside mill towns suddenly allowed access to vast untapped stands
of timber. Around them grew company townsites. One of those was Pickerel
Landing Village. Between 1912 and 1950, a sizable townsite came into being.
A string of stores, houses, a church, school, and boarding houses served
the town’s residents.
