Logger’s Life Museum

 

The Grand Falls-Windsor Heritage Society is looking at the idea of reviving a version of the Logger’s Life Museum which originally operated up by Beothuk Park. The Logger’s Life Museum was closed permanently in 2015.

We would love to hear from anyone with experience in constructing log cabins or that had any involvement with the construction of the former Loggers Life Museum. We’re exploring the possibility of constructing a similar logging camp replica close to our new home on the mill property.

If this peaks your interest and you would like to help out with this project, please give us a call at 489-6903 or drop by to have a chat with us.

Our mandate is to preserve the history of Grand Falls-Windsor and our family of surrounding communities in Central NL.

Thank you for your consideration!

When Johnny Cash Got His Moose

 

We are currently looking for any photos, memorabilia, or stories about Johnny Cash’s moose hunting trip to Newfoundland in 1961.

In October of 2021 a documentary will be filmed in Central Newfoundland, “When Johnny Cash Got His Moose.”

 

We would love to hear from you.
