Explore the logging industry of the West Parry Sound District in this exhibition!

On March 4th, 2020, the Museum opened a new exhibition, Logging: A History. This exhibit will be on display in the Museum's Founders Room until December 20th, so there is plenty of time to come out and explore this important aspect of the West Parry Sound District's history.

This exhibition will discuss some of the prominent lumber companies that were situated along the shores of Georgian Bay. It will delve into the not-so-glamourous life of the lumberman, looking at his day-to-day life and the various jobs each man had to preform in order to get the logs from the forest to the sawmills. And explore the numerous tools of the trade, which assisted the men in being able to complete their roles.
