IXL Museum - Hermansville, Michigan
Of all of the towns that owed their early growth to the timber industry, Hermansville Michigan has preserved its history in the museum that was once the office of the Wisconsin Land & Lumber Co. In this office, tremendous talent was at work on the multitude of hardwoods and other timber in the area. They produced the finest hardwood flooring of the day and it was used in mansions and even the Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City Utah.
The IXL logo is a derivative of the wording "I excel" and is indicative of the superior quality that went into every product produced there. The development of a precise tongue in groove process lead to this company becoming the largest hardwood flooring producer in the country. The museum is packed with amazing artifacts from a bygone day.
Hermansville, Michigan is just off U.S. 2, west of Escanaba.
