About

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.

Exhibits

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.

In June of 2021, new tires were also procured for the unrestored 1923 LaFrance fire engine and installed.
