Program focus on past, present, future
As a part of its outreach series, St. Louis River: Past, Present and Future, the St. Louis River Alliance, is sponsoring a presentation by Tony Dierckins at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Clyde Iron. It is free and open to the public. This event features a presentation of lost industries that were on the St Louis River in the 1800 & 1900. These “lost” industries include logging, commercial fishing, sawmills, flourmills, metal fabrication, shipbuilding and more. Clyde Iron Works was a major producer of modern hoisting equipment, which was used in the building of Grand Coulee, Dam, the Golden State Bridge and the Empire State Building. This complex is now a restaurant, museum and hockey area.
