At the turn of the 20th century, northeastern Minnesota was teeming with lumberjacks, drawn by virgin forests of pine, fir, spruce, birch, aspen, and cedar.  The town of Schroeder, on the West End of Cook County, traces its heritage and its name to this era in North Shore history.  Produced by Carah Thomas.
