The community of Big River has a history rich with pioneering spirit, entrepreneurial vigor, and loads of determination. This community began with determined people that had a vision of establishing businesses. Forestry, commercial fishing, and agriculture became the backbone of the community, which in turn opened up a vibrant retail market that supplied the families of these industries, their basic needs and established the community as an important link to the North.
The development of this community can be best explained by visiting the website, which, in essence is our Timber Trails history book brought to life as an audio/visual presentation.
