Go to Historical Society before you go to the B-52 crash site as the Historical Society museum has interesting displays and newspaper articles. Museum is free. Also has interesting Aviation and native American displays.

The staff are very knowledgeable and offer a wealth of information about the history of the Moosehead region and the logging industry. A small museum is on site with hundreds of items related to the history of logging in this region.
