Where are we going today?

Of the twenty-six rooms we occupy, we use seventeen for exhibits. We display thousands of artifacts, documents, and photos upstairs and down. Upstairs you'll see, besides the Little Hoquiam Railroad in our logging room, historic exhibits in our sports room, children's room, period costume room, and stairway gallery. After the Little Hoquiam Railroad, a favorite for kids is the Polson's daughters' childhood doll house. China Display Downstairs in our dining room we feature Native artifacts elsewhere an extensive China display, Polson family exhibit, and remodeled 1920's period kitchen. Unfortunately, our kitchenware offers no food. Our living room houses our current temporary exhibit, A Walk in the Woods, 80 Years of Rayonier, a photo exhibit produced by the forest products company, Rayonier, Inc., that had its beginnings in the Polson Logging Company. In color and black and white, it includes historic and current photos of the still-evolving forestry practices here on Grays Harbor. We have this, and much more.
