Remembering the Loggers Memorial

Memorial Day 2024

Dear Community,

As Memorial Day approaches it is a good time to remember those who came before us. For thirty-two years the Forks Loggers Memorial has been a tribute to fallen loggers and to those who have dedicated their lives to the timber industry. The Memorial was fully funded with donations and built by volunteers in 1992.

The massive centerpiece Logger statue was created and carved by local artist Dennis Chastain. We are proud of the Memorial’s humble beginnings and the industry it represents. The hardworking loggers of the Olympic Peninsula will always be remembered here.

There are currently 884 names on the Honor Roll. Nomination forms are available at the Forks Timber Museum. When you visit the Memorial a tour of the Timber Museum exhibits will be immensely enjoyable.

The Forks Loggers Memorial continues to be supported by volunteers and donations.
