Old Log Landing
The Northern Pacific Railroad carried logs from points north down what has become known as ‘the Old Grade Road’ and over parts of CSAH 66. The area from CSAH 16 to the Crosslake City Hall was the dumping ground for the logs. Later they were rolled into Crosslake to be floated down the Pine River to the Mississippi. The ‘Old Headquarters’ of the Crosslake Logging Company was on the site of the present day City Hall and Fire Department building.
