When Dreams Come True Folk Art Wood Construction by Loring A. Wood

One of the lesser known wonders of the world was Loring A. Wood’s giant log construction “When Dreams Come True” A VERY big project with very little historical information remaining. Most of what is known appears to come from the wooden sign shown in the photo. “Largest log entrance of nature in the world. Taken from a dream. Built by Loring A. Wood alone. 3200 logs from 464 trees.” along with information on purchasing a postcard. I’ve obtained two different over the years.. The massive sculpture was 100 feet long and 40 feet tall. Dated 1932, which was likely the completion date. The Umpqua Valley Museums Page refers to an autobiography by Mr. Woods which I have not seen.
