Lumbermen, Loggers and Lumberjacks – Central New Brunswick Woodmen’s Museum

Experience Collection

The smell of the wood smoke, the taste of home-baked molasses cookies and a guide that can weave the stories of the lumberman’s way of life help you relive the world of teamsters, loggers and lumberjacks. As you explore the 6.1-ha (15-acre) site your guide will tell the stories and folklore of Boiestown when it was the bustling centre of the lumbering industry. Take a scenic ride on the Whooper Train, listen to local lumberjack tales and learn about the songs sung in the camps at night. Wandering the museum at your leisure, you can’t help but wonder what it must have been like to be “king of the forest.”
