Early Surveyors of Northern Wisconsin


Hello Forest County Residents!

I thought you would enjoy this photo of N.H. Smith and the early surveyors of Northern Wisconsin. I cannot imagine how difficult it would have been to trek through the dense woods of Forest County to try and create maps and lay out boundaries. How would present day surveyors feel about operating with this early equipment? Has anyone ever used equipment like this?
