Experience some of Cass Lake’s history in Lyle’s Logging Camp: a historically accurate museum of logging artifacts. Scaled-down replicas of equipment once used by loggers are on display, and each building is furnished as it would have been in the early days. The six building sites were made by retired forester, Lyle Chisholm, who started working summers in logging camps when he was 11 years old. The buildings contain the used tools and photographs from the past. Explore what it was like to be a lumberjack at the logging camp with an audio self-tour, and relive the period when white pine was king in the lumbering business.
