Westwood in Lassen County, is a small poor town, that use to be a big logging town at one time. We stopped there on the way to Lake Almanor, as it's only about 8 miles down the road from there, and we found out the museum was open, so thought we'd drop in, to see what it had on display.... More

The Westwood Museum houses artifacts from Westwood's first 100 years. It is well organized and staffed by friendly local volunteers. There is an excellent collection of newspapers back to the early 1900s. It's a great place to learn about the history of the history of the area and the little logging company town.
