.......just like we did for years! Finally, after years of being "on our list", we stopped on a poor weather day. There is a tremendous amount of information and artifacts crammed into the buildings that make up the museum. There is the main church you see from the road, but there is also a fascinating school house, parsonage, and World War 2 plane sighting booth on the property also. Tons of local history as well as links to national events, like world wars. If you've spent any time or have a connection to the area, you will likely see many family names that you recognize. Being a teacher myself, I was partial to the old school house which was used until not all that many decades ago. I would recommend planning on 1-2 hours for your visit dependent on how deeply you like to read the display information. This attraction is free and accepts free-will donations.

Great displays and a lot of local history. The staff is very helpful if you are doing geneology or just wanting to research local history. Lots to look at.

the museum was a century old German church which now houses pioneer, logging, farming and native American memorabilia.
There are extensive local history and genealogical files, and a multi-volume library of regional history. There are lots of scheduled events during the Spring through Fall seasons.

I love going to local historical museums when I visit an area so I was happy to find this open. There was 4 of us who got to tour the museum, and the two ladies who showed us around were super friendly! They made sure our girls tried on hats and touched things instead of barking rules at us which was so refreshing! The area has rich logging history and there are old tools and found items-including a ball and chain that someone found in a field (Like from an escaped prisoner or slave?) that one of the docents was so excited to show my daughters by having them lift it and imagine having it around their ankle! The girls got to turn the crank on an old music box type record player. Many patriotic items and memorabilia from WWI and II including uniforms. There are several buildings to tour including an old school-be sure to ask about the hole in the floor which has since been plugged but it's a cute story! Lots of items from local people-a smattering of varied things but we had a great time and learned lots!
