Know Timber: Maxville Timber Culture: Past, Present and Future
Gwen Trice provides an overview of her work preserving the heritage of Maxville and the African American contributions to the logging industry.

The mission of the Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center is focused on gathering, preserving, and sharing the rich history of African American, Indigenous, and immigrant loggers in the Pacific Northwest. We will continue using inclusive stories of multicultural logging communities to better connect the experiences of immigrants and migrants to this larger American narrative.
