  • Not much to see but worth a quick stop. It won't take you long to see it and parking is limited. Just a couple of exhibits, maybe little kids will enjoy.  more »

  • Lots of facts and artifacts packed into a small museum. Even the gift shop was cute with lots of railroad themed books and much more. We found this place well worth the stop. Entrance is free but they accept donations.
  • This is a very small museum but very informative, with lots of pictures. But the person in the office/gift shop, Jackie, was what made the whole experience. She sounds like she could talk for hours and hours about the history of the lumber company and railroad and town, and it doesn't take much persuasion to get her to do so.
  • It is a small little museum but had some interesting things from actual trains used by the lumber company to reports on all the train wrecks the company had. Rick was very friendly and gave us a few other points of interest in the town to go and see.
