The Patten Lumbermen's Museum was established to document Maine Logging History by preserving the logging heritage and accomplishments of early inhabitants of the state of Maine. Exhibits at the museum include some of Maine's most notable contributions to the early mechanization of logging, including the Lombard Steam Hauler, Lombard Gas Hauler, and the Peavey Cant Dog.

Visit our museum to lean more about Maine logging history, including the use of bateaux on waterways to transport supplies, the stories of the fearless river drivers, what life was like inside a remote logging camp, and even the role of bean hole beans.
