Tackling the Timbers in Mission

Creator(s): Mission Museum

Logging was one of the earliest industries in Mission, British Columbia. Its history begins in the 1880s with logging for barrel staves and sternwheeler fuel, moving on to the manufacture of railway ties for the Canadian Pacific Railway, dimensional and finished lumber, and the production of shakes, shingles and lumber products. These industries are still present in Mission today. This exhibit contains some 162 images and eight videos that help to explain and illustrate Mission's logging history.
