Artifact (sled runner) at the Old Johnson Camp in the Pemigewasset Wilderness, New Hampshire. This camp, owned by the Johnson Lumber Company (Gordon Pond Railroad), was located on the side of Mount Liberty in the Liberty Brook drainage of the Pemigewasset Wilderness. The Johnson Lumber Company owned a stand of spruce on the Pemigewasset Wilderness side of Mount Liberty, but they couldn’t reach it from the Gordon Pond Railroad because the terrain was too steep and it was surrounded by land owned by the East Branch & Lincoln Railroad. George Johnson made a deal with James Henry to haul the timber out using the East Branch & Lincoln Railroad. The removal of historic artifacts from federal lands without a permit is a violation of federal law.
