Nestled within the woods of Hartwick Pines State Park, abutting one of the few remaining old growth forests in Michigan, the Hartwick Pines Logging Museum depicts the daily lives of the lumberjacks living and working in Michigan’s northern forests in the 19th century.
The complex includes a recreated tool shop, bunkhouse, and kitchen, and an old sawmill. There are also several unique pieces of heavy equipment displayed that were once used by the lumberjacks plying their trade. All come together to paint a picture of the hardships endured by these workers over 100 years ago.
