This museum is actually a cabin built in the mid-1930s that housed forest rangers for 20 years. Its interior remains like a house with furnishings, kitchen implements, etc. Two rooms have exhibits on the history of Priest Lake with photos and artifacts about logging, fires, animals in the area, early steamboats and silent film maker Nell Shipman. Videos of Shipman's films are available for sale.
