Attractions of Michigan's Upper Peninsula


Logging Museum

Conserving our logging history, heritage and forests.

The Tahquamenon Logging Museum and Nature Study, located just 1 1/2 miles North of Newberry Michigan, invites you to come to their museum and park to explore the original buildings and memorabilia from lumberjack days of the past. Come and see the original C.C.C. buildings full of old photos, models and original logging equipment. Eat a real lumberjack's breakfast in the Authentic Cookshack made over a wood stove with home made care and goodness. Stroll along the boardwalk and nature trail and see part of the Tahquamenon Forest. The Tahquamenon River is nestled along this beautiful trail, where blue herons, ducks, birds and other wildlife abound.

Paul Bunyan would be proud to own this cooking pot! What a piece of kitchenware. This authentic pot was casted in Newberry in the year of 1941. Standing proudly beside it is a Tahquamenon Logging Museum Member and volunteer (going on 22 years of service), Chuck Jerrick. Just behind Chuck, you can see the Authentic Cook Shack where meals are deemed big enough for the likes of Paul Bunyan!

C.C.C. Statue Chapter #161 Depicts the typical young C.C.C. worker. Made in France. This Statue is the only one of it's kind in Upper Michigan. Elegant and strong, the bronze statue will be dedicated on June 22, 2002 @ 1PM with a special ceremony.
