LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Lufkin's 'Texas Forestry Museum' will host their annual 'Sawmill Sampler' event on Friday for East Texas residents.

The event provides East Texans a chance to experience life as a resident of the old sawmills that populated the East Texas region at the turn of the 20th century. 

"It's a living history event where people can come out and see individuals making wooden-chairs, wooden-spoons, a person trimming horse hooves, and see cloggers," said Rachel Collins, Texas Forestry Museum Director. "It will be fun for the entire family."

The museum's 'Sawmill Sampler' will also feature live music by the Hwy 19 Bluegrass Band.

It all begins at 6 p.m. on Friday, May 15th at the museum located at 1905 Atkinson Drive in Lufkin. 

Tickets for the 'Sawmill Sampler' range from $5-8. For more details visit the museum's event page.
