On July 17th 2019, the Creston Community Forest donated $5,000 to the Creston Museum to help restore Creston Valley’s oldest skidder machine – the logging arch! 

This machine was used as a horse-drawn log skidder,  and is a one-of-a-kind artifact dating back to at least 1913. Due to long-term exposure to weather, many of the machine’s parts are falling apart. The Creston Museum has developed a campaign to help rebuild the logging arch into one that is yet again fully functional. 

Currently, the Creston Museum is only ~$9,000 away from reaching the logging arch’s restoration cost of $30,000. There is still just under 2 weeks to go until the campaign is over. Help preserve the Creston Valley’s rich and impressive history by restoring the logging arch to it’s original state.
