Come help us find these tricky artifacts. I hope you have been sharpening your investigative skills.
I'm not very pretty; I'm plain as can be.
I'm a small thing that's made from the wood of a tree.
You'll be happy to have me, and quite a few spares,
Because when you need me, it's often in pairs.
Take a step back in time while solving fun riddles that will lead
you to a time gone by!

Light Lunch Group Tour
The Mason County Historical Society at Historic White Pine Village would like to welcome groups to travel to our village for a very enjoyable tour of 30 historic exhibit buildings, including the original 1849 Mason County Courthouse (on the National Register of Historic Places ) and an authentic turn-of-the-century steam locomotive, tender car, and flat car loaded with logs and headed toward the Village’s working sawmill. Visitors come face-to-face with early settlers: first-person interpreters with scripts carefully prepared by staff and historians, they interact and improvise with visitors in the persona of historical characters and recreate actual personages from Mason County. The package also includes a delicious light lunch, which will be served in our Town Hall.
Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.
Below are a couple of geo-caches located in Mason County. We hope these caches will inspire a deeper appreciation for the region’s rich maritime & lumbering history. Have fun and happy hunting!
