Camp 17 - Carpenter-Hixon Camp

Although the photo indicates Blind River, this is referring to the Company's area office.  This photo was actually taken along the Mississagi River at the junction of the Rapid River outflow.  Today, there is a cement bridge that exists at this location and it spans the Mississagi River.  This camp was located between Camps 4 and 34 and was one of the more popular ones.

I had the opportunity to have a conversation with an area resident of Axe Lake who indicated there a still lumbering artifacts  along the west banks of the river just downstream from the cement bridge.
