Our Mission
To preserve and maintain the history of the Glenwood City area so that future generations can appreciate the hard work and dedication of those who turned a logging camp into the town they know today.

Our mission is on the move! We have achieved great things in 2012 thanks to the generous support of our donors and volunteers!

We now have our museum open and ready to display, you can find out more by clicking the Museum link.
