2001 – THE VON DONOP CREEK STORY: 1920 to 1960
(Curated by Doreen Thompson)
Featured photographs and artifacts from an amazing era in Cortes social history and that of logging on the island.
Highlights included the Pioneer Kitchen, logging equipment, and life on floats at logging camps in Von Donop with stories from those who lived and grew up in the floating camps.
The Von Donop Shed, dedicated to logger Mike Herrewig, was constructed at one end of the Heritage Garden to protect a collection of logging equipment and is opened to the public.
