Patten Lumbermen's Museum

Welcome to the Patten Lumbermen's Museum

The Patten Lumbermen's Museum was established to preserve a graphic record of the lumber industry as it existed in forests of Northern Maine before the second World War. It is located just west of Patten on the Shin Pond Road which, for over 175 years, has been the highway over which have passed thousands of woodsmen, their horses and supplies, to cut the pine, spruce, firs and hardwoods in the upper valley of the East Branch of the Penobscot. In more recent years an endless stream of trucks loaded with logs and pulpwood pass the museum daily.
