Lumbermen's Monument

My sister was visiting and we decided to take her and her husband for the scenic tour of the AuSable River, and the Lumbermen's Monument was part of it. I recommend any visitors to our little town to take this tour down River Road. It's breathtaking.

Lumbermen's Monument

This is a monument that has been set up kind of like a museum. It is dedicated to all the thousands of lumbermen who serviced Michigan, particularly the multitude of rivers in Iosco County. It is well worth the stop.

Oscoda also has a Paul Bunyan statue, a tribute to James MacGillivary, author of Bunyan tales, who was a town native and is buried there.
