Log Wagon at St. Paul

Log wagon at St. Paul, circa 1900. During the heyday of the timber industry in Northwest Arkansas (late 1800s-1920s), the Madison County community of St. Paul was a thriving boomtown. The forests of Madison, Newton, and Johnson counties provided a wealth of oak and hickory. It took three teams of horses to bring this massive log into town!  Bob Besom Collection (S-83-327-11)
