Betty Quigley provided the next 2 pictures. There were 4 or 5 cabins along the highway in the 1930/40s along with an office where people could live or stay like a motel. It was ran by Merle Colling.

One Response to “A UPDATE PAGES”

  1. Mike Sahm says:

    Great pictures of Dad in front of his garage and of the wrecker (tow truck) he built–the wrecker is now owned by Murry and Liz (Sahm) Weiss. Why we always referred to it as the wrecker I do not recall.

    The photo of the boy scouts at the Indian Grave–Charlotte (Munsey) Buckles Sahm is the second adult going l to r, believe that is Clu Sahm in front of her, Fred Sahm blocking a clear shot of Clu, and Robert Sahm to the far right in a plaid shirt.

    And the rest of the photos are great, particularly the one of Father Berry.

    Are the cabins pictured the ones that were put together to create the Saladen, Wayne, Tipton, Randolph house? (Those are the families I recall li ving in the house–the house just south of the Carmichael home.

    Keep up the great work!
