“The historic town of Weed”

The Weed Historic Lumber Town Museum is a vivid collection of artifacts and photographs of the people who founded and lived in Weed. Through the objects displayed, one gains an awareness of the courage, commitment, and community spirit of Weed that are typical of lumber towns in the Northwest. Three of the museum's rooms have been decorated with some original pieces to resemble a typical kitchen, sewing room, and bedroom from the 1900s. We also have a room dedicated to Charlie Byrd, former board member of the museum, who was the first African American sheriff in California. Two of the jail cells and the booking room are left intact. Artifacts from the old lumber company store and from the company hospital are on display. Logging tools used to fell the trees and to skid the logs are shown. These include hand tools used before the advent of electric or diesel power, a large bulldozer used to skid logs and to build roads in the woods, a snag pusher used to push over dead and fire-hazardous trees, and tram cars and locomotives used to move lumber in the mill yards.

This museum was awesome. Great place to take a look at the past. Best of all, it was FREE. Donations are welcome.
