Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center and Josephy Center for Arts and Culture Present: Timber Culture
January 6 - February 20
We are excited to announce that Josephy Center will be hosting Timber Culture a traveling exhibit and exploration into cultural heritage in the Pacific Northwest. The exhibit depicts the lives of loggers and their families drawn together from different cultures during the great migration, presenting an inclusive look at Oregon’s multicultural logging communities. In sharing and discussing the history of the segregated logging community of Maxville, Oregon, the exhibit examines issues of race and social justice through the lens of Oregon’s history.
This year Maxville celebrates it’s 100 year anniversary and we are honored to share this exhibit and our history here in Wallowa County.
Thank you to our sponsors: The Autzen Foundation, Roundhouse Foundation, Ronald W. Naito MD Foundation, James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation and Oregon Arts Commission.

In addition to “Timber Culture”, the Josephy Center will be concurrently showing “Hello Neighbor”, a community Building project also brought to you by the Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center.
The Hello Neighbor! project explores what it means to live in Wallowa County. Our inclusive mission to gather and preserve the history of Timber Culture in Wallowa County is not just about what happened in the past; it includes the people living here today. We are all part of County history in the making.
