About Forest History Center

The Forest History Center is a recreated turn-of-the-century logging camp.

After the exhibits, visit the logging camp where you'll find the camp blacksmith, saw filer, clerk, cook and lumberjacks. Then, board the moored river "wanigan," a floating cook shack used when the logs and men headed downstream to the mills. Then take a seat on the porch of a 1930s Minnesota Forest Service patrolman's cabin and lookout tower and hear about the ranger's important work protecting woodland resources.

Also features multi media exhibits within the visitor centre including a timber harvester siimulator, a forest fire presentation in the theatre and a special area just for kids with crawl through log, related books and games.
