Historical Archives: Logging

A collection of old logging photos from the late 1800’s to the 1960’s

You can’t escape Red Deer logging history as there are so many footprints of the past still visible along the river. At Bower Ponds in North Red Deer you can still see one of the Great West Lumber Company millpond and the old logging canal that once lead to it. There are also more millponds further downstream at McKenzie Trail and 3 Mile Bend.
