The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum

On a trip through Little Falls, Minnesota (south of Brainerd), I stopped at The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum.

The location of this museum is perfect. It has a beautiful garden area in the back and a view of the Mississipi River can be seen from the gazebo.

Visitors can search the county’s past by looking at the resources and documents that are inside the museum.

The museum was named for lumberman, Charles A. Weyerhaeuser, who played a large part in this area’s history. It is open year-round and admission is free although donations are accepted.

The current exhibit was The Apron: Body Armour or Bling. Many aprons of different varieties were hanging throughout this section of the museum. There were many other displays of clothing, tools, etc.

This is a nice place to stop to get a feel for the history of this area.
