History of the Spanish River River Area

Logo.jpg (10236 bytes)

An article about the history of the Spanish River area was written by Joseph Lampel when he worked for INCO, sometime in the 1970's. I think it is of value to anyone who is interested in the area, and thus have decided to put it on a web page. My thanks to INCO for giving the permission to "reprint". And special thanks to Bill Blight from Espanola, for salvaging the report and passing it to me.

I Fur Traders

II Systematic Exploration

III The Lumber Industry

This article goes on with chapters on hydroelectric development and some more on logging. If there is demand, I may expand the webpages.
