Come hear the stories of forestry and lumbering in the north woods! From special events to the daily program, there's always something exciting happening at the Forest History Center.
What to See and Do
See for yourself how the lumberjacks lived and worked. Visit this recreated 1900-era logging camp featuring a blacksmith, lumberjacks, and other costumed interpreters. See draft horses performing feats of strength. During winter season, visits to the logging camp are self-guided.
Keep watch over the forest by climbing the state's only 100-foot fire tower. Learn how rangers spotted fires and communicated where they were burning. Tower open June–October. Tower closed November–May for safety reasons.
