About Central New Brunswick Woodmen's Museum

The Central New Brunswick Woodmen’s Museum is situated in the geographical centre of the province, this 6.1 –ha (15 acre) forest land is immersed in lumbering legends, ghostly hauntings, folklore, and songs. Savour the stories of the Canadian lumberjack. Their colorful and vibrant lives have been shaped by our majestic forest and the magic of the Miramichi River.

Wandering the Museum buildings, you weave the story of the arrival of Thomas Boies; in 1821. Founder of Boiestown, Mill Owner, and Lumberman. Boiestown became the supply and “jumping-off” place for the lumbering business up and down the Miramichi River. Stories of the camp cook, teamsters, loggers, lumberman, stage coach drivers, and the historic Whooper Train are spun throughout the Museum site; tales that are as old as the trees in our Forest.

The Woodmen’s Museum’s mission is to preserve and promote the lumberman’s way-of-life and the history of the forests in the Province of New Brunswick.
