Timber Culture is an exhibit providing an inclusive look at Oregon’s multicultural logging industry. Consisting of twenty framed photographs, it depicts the lives of loggers and their families drawn together from different cultures during the great migration. The exhibit is created by the Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center, which seeks to gather, catalog, preserve, and interpret the rich history of the multicultural logging community of Maxville, Oregon, as well as similar communities in the Pacific Northwest.
