Hedstrom Lumber Company Sawmill Tours
August 5 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Friday, repeating until August 26, 2022
Hedstrom Lumber Company offers sawmill tours twice a week during the summer tourist season. These tours are led by the interpreters of the US Forest Service. Learn about the history of our hundred-year-old sawmill, timber harvesting, sawmill processing, lumber products, and byproducts as you wander through a tour of the biggest hands-on sawmill in Minnesota, watching the lumber be processed, seeing employees in action, and getting an eyeful of our complex (and sometimes vintage) machinery!
Tours are free of charge, but require a reservation (online only, sign up below).
Max group size is 12 people, and closed-toe shoes are required. Masks are not required at this time, per local regulations. Children on the tour must be old enough to effectively use standard earplugs (typically preschool and up).
We provide safety equipment, and tours do involve indoor and outdoor walking over uneven surfaces and climbing stairs.
Call the office at 218-387-2995 with questions!
