Englehardt History

In the late 1800s the first settlers arrived in the area, drawn by the abundance of natural resources such as timber and fertile farmland.

In the early 1900s, the town of Englehart grew with a sawmill and a railway station. The region’s lumber industry was strong and soon several sawmills operated in the area.

The town continued to grow throughout the first half of the 1900s, with new businesses and new schools.

During World War II, Englehart’s sawmills provided lumber for the construction of many barracks and other military buildings.

After World War II, the town’s economy began to diversify, with the development of new industries like mining, agriculture, and tourism.
