The Jam of all Jams
by Edna Curry
The largest logjam in the world occured in 1886 on the St. Croix River at Taylors Falls, Minnesota. Reporters and sightseers arrived from all over the world. This event spawned the current tourist industry in the St. Croix Valley and also fueled the drive for the current two Interstate Parks there today. Pictures of this event are available at both the Minnesota and Wisconsin Historical Societies.
