Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park
Woodstock, VT

Marsh-Billings-RockefellerMarsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park is the only national park to focus on conservation history and the evolving nature of land stewardship in America. Opened in June 1998, Vermont's first national park preserves and interprets the historic Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller property. The Park is named for George Perkins Marsh, one of the nation's first global environmental thinkers, who grew up on the property, and for Frederick Billings, an early conservationist who established a progressive dairy farm and professionally managed forest on the former Marsh farm. Frederick Billings's granddaughter, Mary French Rockefeller, and her husband, conservationist Laurance S. Rockefeller, sustained Billings's mindful practices in forestry and farming on the property over the latter half of the 20th century. In 1983, they established the Billings Farm & Museum to continue the farm's working dairy and to interpret rural Vermont life and agricultural history.

Patten Lumbermen's Museum
Milton, NH


Patten Lumbermen's Museum

Did you know that the forests of Northern Maine once supplied some of the best ship masts in the world and that Bangor was once the largest shipping port for lumber in the world? Massive white pine trees, the modern date state tree, were the wood of choice for the masts on many British and American ships, among others, and the vast northern Maine woods made the area one of the biggest suppliers of lumber for decades in the 1800's. More recently, paper mills, such as the former Great Northern Paper Company, and saw mills produce forest products including coated specialty papers and lumber, among many others, that continue to write the story of the history of logging in Maine.
