Too many artifacts to mention here, but an excellent display of the history of logging in the area. At the time of our visit, there was a display of textiles and clothing of early 1900's. Well worth the visit.

Stop in to this museum and was quiet surprise to find out about the Blind River. We were not sure what this Museum would offer but it was very knowledgeably about the history of logging in the area. A great joy to visit.
