Lois Lumber donated cedar planks for maintenance on the trail


 t&rT&R has kindly continued their support to PRFHS this year by deeply discounting the gravel and sand we use on the Railroad expansion project - a gold level contribution over many years. 


  • Special shout out to  Cottage Creek Bakeshop.  Since 2011 owner Janet Lyon has often donated delicious baked goods to volunteer train crews on Sundays at the farmers market.

PRFHS' relationship to the Forestry Museum is similar that of "Friends of the Library" to the PR Public Library.

(Donations marked for the "Forestry Museum" through us are sent to the PR Historical Museum for support of the Forestry Museum. Donations direct to the PR Historical Museum are also encouraged.)
