The History Center started as a limited term project for the City Centennial and has developed into a very good quality local museum to highlight the settlement and development of a rich timber and fishing economy that continues into the present day. Great photographs and a collection of oral histories.

The miles long, tightly moored log 'rafts' pictured on each wall and the labor intensive logging depicted, along with the historic railroad, make a visit to this little museum worthwhile. Toledo was a veritable boom town for many years, burning and rebuilt.... More

Toledo, celebrating their centennial a few years back, has a nice little museum downtown explaining the history of their fine city. It's a small standard museum you will find almost anywhere, but taking 20-30 minutes to see it's history is worth a stop. A lot of photos and exhibits make up the museum. Learning about the logging and other businesses... More
