A Short Introduction to the Site

Take a 1920's log barn and combine it with a completely modern hayloft and you have the Seeley Lake Historical Barn/Museum and Visitor's Center. Each of the seven stalls (double size as they were for teams not individual horses) carries the name of a team of horses that lived in the barn and hosts a different theme. The floor shows the signs of wear and tear of many hooves and shoes, and the mangers signs of hungry horses.

Historical Time Period:
Displays are from the late 1800's to mid 1970's and cover a wide range of interests.

By stalls, the displays are: Jack and Jill: Stories of the pioneer Waldbillig Family. Ace and Joker: Memorabilia belonging to Norman Mclean Beans and Ham: The map room, with reproductions from the 1800's of the area. Popcorn and Peanuts: Children's toys through the generations. Thunder and Lightening: An assembly of military items from local residents. Nip and Tuck: The history of forestry in the area. Eggs and Bacon: Through the lens of Eddie Coyle, local photographer and entrapeneur.
