Large Wood Carvings
Several locations visible along Main St
As you pass through Packwood, you will notice a number of large impressive wood carvings located in front of homes, parks, businesses and a church. The tree trunks are big here, and so are the carvings. They're very good - it's well-worth a stop in Packwood to check them out.
I'd like to recognize the carvers who have created these. So far, I've only tracked down the name of Trace Breitenfeldt, who created the carving of Virgil Jeffries, a former resident nicknamed the Mayor of Packwood. Other carvings in town featured a similar style, so I suspect that they are also the work of Breitenfeldt.
