About Maine Forestry Museum
The Maine Forestry Museum is a small non-profit 501(c) 3 museum dedicated to preserve the rich cultural heritage of forestry and conservation in the State of Maine so that it may be shared with generations to come; to educate about the contributions of logging, logging families, and the forestry industry: to instill appreciation for the natural resources of the Maine forest; and to inspire visitors to support this cultural preservation and encourage others to join in the effort.
Centrally located between the headwaters of both the Androscoggin and Kennebec Rivers, Rangeley has long been one of Maine's logging centers. This rich heritage, combined with active logging operations, makes Rangeley an ideal location for a museum dedicated to western Maine's timber heritage. In 1979, a group of loggers, homemakers and area residents founded the Maine Forestry Museum. Today, a three-story main building stands on an 80-acre site, just one mile east of Rangeley on Route 16. An extensive collection of logging artifacts collected over 40 years that include: captivating art collection, including cravings, dioramas, oil paintings, photographs, original logging documents, manual and heavy equipment (outside display) from primitive logging operations, chainsaw collection originating from the 1930's. Hiking trails lead over Gull Pond Stream to Haley Pond. Covered pavilion picnic area and more. The Museum is open Wednesday thru Sunday from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm.
