In 1968, logger Rodney
Richard watched as a Brown Paper Company foreman was
about to push an old snubbing machine over a bank.
"If you're going to do that," Rodney called
out, "I'll take it home." He did and his
dream of a logging museum began to take shape.
In 1979, Rodney, with a group of loggers, homemakers,
and area residents, founded the Rangeley Lakes Region
Logging Museum, intent on collecting materials and
raising money for land and buildings.
Today, a three-story Main Building stands on an eighteen-acre
site, just one mile east of Rangeley on Route 16.
