The museum will OPEN for the season on Saturday, May 27, 2023. Museum hours are: Wednesday through Monday, 10:00am to 5:00pm; closed Tuesdays. 

This year's opening celebrates the 100th anniversary of our 2 LaFrance fire engines.


The Weed Lumber Town Museum is a collection of artifacts and photographs of the people who founded and lived in Weed. Artifacts from the old lumber company store and from the company hospital are on display.


Some rooms are decorated with original pieces to resemble a typical home from the 1900s as well as a room dedicated to law enforcement with jail cell and booking area. See logging and hand tools, including tram cars and locomotives, used to move lumber in the mill yards.

Latest Project

Tires on the restored 1923 LaFrance were becoming a safety concern. After a nationwide search, new ones were found on the East coast and shipped; the historically accurate tires were then installed. In June of 2021, new tires were also procured for the unrestored 1923 LaFrance fire engine and installed. Celebrate with us the 100th Anniversary of these engines this year!
