Be sure to take time to watch the very educational film. And there are lots of photographs and exhibits in the museum as well as a gift shop. Also enjoyed the outdoor displays such as saw mill, holding pond, engine and train cars, etc.

Another one of those places I should have visited a long time ago. Can actually see how the lumber industry worked years ago. They display and explain how it was done. If ever in the area, don't miss it!
