The logging industry played a vital role in the history of the Sanford area. A good place to start your historical exploration is
the exhibit in the main museum building.
What are “Big Wheels” and why were they important to the development of the logging industry? Learn about them and see how our own volunteers built a replica for the museum.
The River Walk Covered Bridge offers a splendid view of the Tittabawassee River below the Sanford dam. Our talented group of volunteers built this structure in 2010-2011.
The goal of the Founders Day Celebration is to bring people, families, and especially children to the museum grounds for outdoor fun and an educational experience.
