  • Really nice local museum . Neat displays with lots of old machinery, tools, and newspaper articles. They have a neat old replica of a fire lookout tower complete with an old notebook filled with reports from a previous ranger.
  • Very interesting gives you a look into how the loggers lived and the life of the campcook. some of the women loggers pictures. Enjoyed
  • Great for historical information about the area as well as twilight information.
  • The sweet and friendly volunteers alone make this worth the stop! I was hesitant to go in, but really got my $3 worth. I'm so glad I stopped and took the time to look around. There are some amazing photos and I learned a few new things.
  • Nice staff and a good place to know the history of Forks Timber.
