Logging workers are listed as the number one most dangerous job in America.
The Forks Loggers Memorial has been a part of our community for thirty years. It stands tall as a tribute to fallen loggers and to those who have dedicated their lives to the timber industry. There are currently 867 names on the Honor Roll beneath the massive carved logger statue created by local artist Dennis Chastain. We are proud to honor them all.
To be eligible for the Honor Roll nominees must have worked on the Olympic Peninsula in the timber industry. The Forks Timber Museum foyer has nomination forms and memory albums to review the nominees’ information and photos. The Timber Museum has many exhibits of local history and is enjoyable for all ages.
The Forks Loggers Memorial continues to be supported by volunteers and donations. Please visit the Loggers Memorial and Timber Museum soon.
