Columbia Pacific Heritage Musuem
Join us for the CPHM Annual meeting and hear about the Polson Museum, our neighbors to the north! John Larson is a unique Museum Director for a unique museum. He will fill us in on recent activities at the Polson Museum in Hoquiam.
In addition to the 6,500 square foot Polson family mansion, the Polson Museum features a Railroad Camp. In both its building and exhibits, the Railroad Camp is designed to retain the aesthetic, material, and functional qualities of a century-old locomotive shed. It measures 80 feet by 40 feet and is ribbed with 12x12s milled by John Larson himself. The structure houses many artifacts from the Polson’s extensive heavy-machinery collection. Recently the Museum has acquired a 1915 Sears Craftsman home. John continues his use of heavy machinery as he and his crew restore the home to its original floor plan and details.
