Lufkin® 1877 One Billion Board Feet

Event Description 

In 1877 alone, one billion board feet of lumber were cut and floated along the nearby 26-mile Saginaw River.  Shown is a more recent photo of a Lufkin® log rule being used. 

E.T. Lufkin proclaimed that Lufkin® products are not the lowest in price, but are "the most durable and therefore the cheapest."
