Self-taught documentarian Ray Olson is back with another edition of his eclectic local travel series “Humboldt Outdoors.”
In today’s episode, Olson takes us on a tour of the Timber Heritage Association’s up-and-coming rail and logging museum on the Samoa Peninsula.
“The Humboldt County-based Timber Heritage Association has been working for more than 10 years with a corps of incredibly dedicated volunteers to create what they intend to be a world-class museum featuring Humboldt County’s rail and timber history,” Olson says in the video. “One of their board members [Joseph Oliver] has offered a behind-the-scenes tour of all the work they’ve done so far.”
Click the video to watch Olson and Oliver explore Samoa’s historic Roundhouse, built by the John Vance Mill and Lumber Company in 1893, and discuss the ins and outs of restoring a 100-year-old executive passenger train car.
