Hayward history:

This area was first settled in the late 1800ís though early Native Americans had lived in the area for centuries. The seemingly inexhaustible source of good timber was a large draw factor for the growth in the area. The founder of Hayward was Anthony Judson Hayward. The town was named for him. After visiting the area, he was impressed with the potential here for a lumber mill. The Namekagon River would make an ideal place for the timber storage and the forests all around would bring in the needed lumber. Added to the pluses was the fact that the railroad was coming. In fact, the rails arrived in 1881 and by a year later, several power dams were built along the river to power the mill that, in turn, produced the lumber to build the new larger mill. The new mill was built by June, 1883 and the new community of Hayward had stores, homes, businesses and, of course, the large, new mill. Sawyer County was created in 1883 and many roads were built in the area. Both events played a large part in the growth of the area. Though an important part of Hayward history, the mill did itís part in the economy when it burned down on 11 May 1922. This marked a change for Hayward as from this time on, the economy emphasis moved from logging to tourism. The Hayward area was advertised in the state as the prime vacation area for visitors and residents alike.
