 Exhibits in the Auditorium

Our auditorium displays still include a large space devoted to the military service of local people. The family of Harold R. Anderson, the first casualty of World War II, has loaned the Museum an exhibit of his uniform, documents, trunk, pictures, and his mother's Gold Star. 

The auditorium now also includes an exhibit about logging, lumber mills, and the shift to an agriculture based economy. Included in this exhibit is the "Logging Camp" corner, built and donated by the Haedt Brothers, Inc. and two scale models (1" = 1'): a replica of Dave Jamison's father's dairy barn built in the 1940's and a replica of the Norlander farmhouse built and donated by Alfred Norlander and furnished by his sister, Lois Hove.


The Milaca Public School, country school and Normal School Exhibits 

are all in the Power House Room on the lower level.
