A historical gem To understand the history and importance of logging on the West End, stop by the Forks Timber Museum and Loggers Memorial. This small museum has a lot of history packed in a small space. Look for the log cabin at the south end of Forks with the loggers out front — next door to the Forks Chamber of Commerce Visitors Center, 1411 S. Forks Ave. Built in 1989 by the Forks High School carpentry class and local volunteers, this cozy museum offers a self-guided interactive look into the local history of homesteading, farming, logging and Native American cultures — with a large dose of history thrown in. Children 12 and younger receive free entry with a paid adult admission and will be entertained with the Museum Hunt — finding things as they go through the museum. At the end of the “hunt,” children will be given a prize. Displays include a pioneer “home” with a wind-up phonograph, ringer washer, cast-iron stove and other items. A loggers bunkhouse, chain saw display and hand saws of all kinds are displayed. Models of old-time steam donkeys and tractors plus historical photographs are featured. A small gift shop offers locally made items to help fund the museum. Outside the museum, you will find the Forks Loggers Memorial, old equipment and a garden along with picnic tables. Open daily. Museum entry costs $3. Visit forkstimbermuseum.org for more details or phone 360-374-9663. L e t
