       Lumbering is well developed in this section of Oconto county, having
been started here nearly 75 years ago. Two large saw mills are, today,
sawing cuts that aggregate nearly 30 million feet yearly. This supplies
Midwestern and eastern markets. The hardwood flooring plant is one of the
most modern and up-to-date to be found in the entire county. Fiahing and
a pickle factory are industries of note to this Oconto county community,
as is the knit-sweater coat factory and veneer plant. Oconto has three
rural routes.
