A tour through the spacious outdoor museum gives visitors a glimpse of how logging evolved from using horses, oxen, and felling axes to modern diesel tractors and trucks. Railroad buffs enjoy learning more about the significant role the railroad played in early-day logging.

Visitors to Collier Memorial State Park Logging Museum learn all kinds of interesting history about the early logging days. Examples: Some early Northwest logging crews came from Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota, bringing specialized equipment along with them. Sailors from Nova Scotia, after navigating Cape Horn, deserted their sailing ships and became loggers. They added their vast knowledge about rigging to the Northwest logging industry.

Enjoy the rustic pathways throughout the park as you walk close-up to displays organized by era. Our newly arranged Pioneer Village and our quaint gift shop are special attractions!
