Service Description

Learn about one of the primary industries in this area. At the end of the Civil War, three-quarters of Louisiana’s land was forested, most of it with longleaf pine, 150 to 200 years old and reaching more than 100 feet in height. By the 1880s, out-of-state lumber companies, came south to harvest these pines. From 1900 to 1920, Louisiana was one of the nation’s top three lumber-producing states. Now you can visit one of the first Sawmills built in the area. This is an all day tour.
