This was a great little museum. I would visit again if I'm ever in the area. $5 entry. It was pretty cool to see all the documents from so long ago. Highly recommend.
A wonderfully done local history museum focusing on logging spread out in several historic buildings on beautiful grounds. RV sites and a lovely nature trail takes you to the river. A hidden gem and a high point of my trip to the UP!
