Notes
Survey number HAER WI-7
Significance: The Round Lake Logging Dam is one of the few remaining early artifacts of Wisconsin's logging industry. It was built during the industry's log driving and log booming stages when cut timber was collected and sorted in man-made ponds before being driven downriver to be assembled into rafts for shipment to lumber mills. The dam was built by lumbermen relying on rules of thumb rather than by engineers working from established scientific principles.
