Artifact (part of a sled runner on a logging sled) at an abandoned camp along a tributary of the Wild Ammonoosuc River, on the side of Mount Blue, in Benton, New Hampshire. This is possibly a logging camp of the International Paper Company. The Fall Mountain Paper Company, which did log drives on the Wild Ammonoosuc River in the 1800s, became part of the International Paper Company in 1898; the last log drive was in 1911. The removal of historical artifacts from federal lands without a permit is a violation of federal law.
