ST. CROIX LUMBER COMPANY. Although an exact date when it opened in Dubuque is not known, the lumber company was in operation prior to 1876 as a branch of the principal company located in Stillwater, Minnesota.

The company was purchased in 1902 by the Eclipse saw mill which planned to have the old mill torn out and a new one constructed. No record was found of what became of the Dubuque operation.
