Where Two Rivers Meet???When Ojibwa Indians ceded their Chippewa Valley lands to the United States in 1837, Yankee and Canadian lumbermen rushed westward to explore the region's vast white pine forests. At this meeting plasce of two rivers, Eau Claire provided an ideal site for sawmills. Loggers floated buoyant pine downstream to mills where it was cut into lumber for markets along the Mississippi. Lumbering gave birth to the City of Eau Claire and for more than 50 years dominated its economy.
