Sierra Nevada Logging Museum

2148 Dunbar Rd, Arnold, CA 95223

The Sierra Nevada Logging Museum tells the history of loggers and logging-related industries in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California – from the discovery of gold in 1848 and California Gold Rush to the present day. The geographic scope of the Museum encompasses the 18 counties of the Sierra Nevada range, from Lassen County in the North to Kern County in the South. The museum is located in the community of White Pines on a 7-acre (28,000 m) site, originally occupied by the historic logging and mill workers’ camp of the Blagen Lumber Company, which operated from 1938 to 1962. It has an indoor exhibit space, as well as outdoor exhibits of large logging equipment and artifacts. The museum is located on California State Route 4 in the Stanislaus National Forest, near Arnold, in Calaveras County.
