History[edit]

Two landmarks in Schroeder are Lamb's resort (previously Stickney's) and the Cross River Lumber Company. The lumber mill is now closed. It was owned and operated by Robert Silver for many years. Bob had a long history in Schroeder. He cruised timber for the Schroeder company as a younger man. You can read about it in the book "Cutting Across Time". The Schroeder Lumber Company Bunkhouse, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is also near the town. It is the last remaining structure of a logging camp that existed from 1895 through 1905.

At the mouth of the Cross River is the place where Frederic Baraga safely washed ashore on a boat during a storm in 1846. In thanks he left a cross, now replaced by a granite one.
