Hike in the footsteps of history on Saturday, Oct. 14 at the area’s newest park.
Wannigan Regional Park in Frazee is the location of the sawmill built in 1872 on the Otter Tail River. Millions of board feet of white and red pine were floated down the river to this location.
The Becker County Historical Society and Museum is partnering with the Laurentian Lakes Chapter of the North Country National and Scenic Trail to interpret the logging era.
Beginning at 1 p.m., there will be guided hikes on the one mile of the North Country Trail. There will be nature activities for the kids with snacks and hot chocolate provided.
At 2 p.m, the museum will present this area’s historical significance.
Wannigan Regional Park is located next to the ball fields adjacent to the Frazee-Vergas high school.
Dress for the weather in your favorite lumberjack clothes and make plans to attend. All are welcome. For more information call the Becker County Museum at 218-847-2938 or Karen at 218-841-2857.
