Lewiston historian John Bradbury will present “Horse Logging on the Clearwater River” online at 7 p.m. Thursday in a talk organized by the Nez Perce County Historical Society.
Bradbury’s talk begins with the timber barons who raced to claim their share when they learned the finest, low-elevation, white pine forest in the nation was in Idaho, according to a news release from the society. Logging started with state timber sales on the Palouse River. Mills popped up and took root throughout the region, and loggers worked with horses, cross-cut saws, flumes, trains and log drives.
