Picnics Included

Situated on nearly two acres of parkland, The Polson lies along the banks of the historic Hoquiam River. Extensive gardens, landscaping, and outdoor machinery displays complement the lovely mansion. You can explore our hillside trail, enjoy the Burton Ross Memorial Rose Garden, and enjoy meals on one of our two picnic tables.

Blacksmith Shop

The Museum's replica of
the Polson Logging Company
blacksmith shop houses the
Polson Logging Company's
original forge, anvil, and
other historic logging tools.

Two steam donkeys — an 1890s Lidgerwood and an 1880s Dolbeer — give an impressive glimpse into Grays Harbor's steam-powered logging era.

Lamb SpeedTrak

A 1933 Linn Half Track
used by the Polson Logging
Co. and a 1932 Hoquiam-built Lamb Speed-Trak are both now displayed indoors in our new Railroad Camp.
