Since 1960, members have supported the great place Leonard’s Mills has become. Deciding to create a living history site rather than a static museum, early members of the Maine Forest and Logging Museum chose the site where Oliver Leonard had a mill. Starting with clearing land in the 1980s, members and volunteers have pitched in and built buildings, restored artifacts and participated in events and school programs to share some great Maine history.
