Celebrate! The State of Maine turns 200 in 2020, and the Maine Forest and Logging Museum turns 60! Much of Maine’s growth as a state is tied to the lumber industry, and MFLM shares that history in a unique way. Generations learned about life 200 years ago while on school trips to see the water-powered sawmill and covered bridge in our recreated village known as Leonard’s Mills.
Now, people are coming back with their children and grandchildren to see the continued expansion of the museum. The 1900s are well represented with machinery in action– a Lombard loghauler running on steam; sawmills and machine shop demonstrations, and growing displays of other logging equipment.
Support us on #GivingTuesday with a generous donation towards the continued growth of the museum. You make it possible to save Maine’s great history to share with growing numbers of school children, visitors and volunteers.
