2 & 3  Quonset Huts (exhibit halls). Once used as actual Lumbering camps by Boise Cascade Company who donated the huts to the museum in the early stages of construction. In the first Quonset Hut, you begin your visit with the geology display, rocks and soil play an important role in the growth of trees. See how mother nature plays tricks which cause many deformities in the natural growth of trees.  

The Micmac and Maliseets were our very first lumberjacks and the primitive stone tools have evolved into metal tools and axes which are still used today.

Explore logging traditions and experience as you view the tradition logging diorama and the photographs of old time logging.  Check out the farm - imagine washing your clothes on a washboard! or ironing clothes with an iron that needed to be heated on a woodstove before using!! or the old one room school house, or the Barber shop with its red & white pole.

Visit McCloskey Store and Emily Allain's Telephone Exchange Office - many a storey was told on the "Party" line.  (Check our Emily's Spirits of the River Tour.)
