Forest County: Yours to Enjoy: Wabeno:
Wabeno has one of the few remaining steam powered logging haulers still operational in the nation. It is one of 200 such machines built in the early 1900s by Phoenix Manufacturing Company. It was owned by the Jones Lumber Company and used at their mill from 1909 until 1935. It was brought by the town in 1944 and restored to life in 1965.
