Wauconda Ghost Town

The next stop on our day trip was Wauconda.  

The Hedge brothers founded Wauconda in 1898.  They opened a gold mine here. 

Wauconda has been relocated three times.  Although there are many homesteads dotting the landscape, they are inaccessible to the public.

The firepit is behind the school.  It is not original, but I love the stone and the grate.

The teepee is not original either, but interesting, nonetheless.


Teepee Entrance

I like the ladder shadow on the inside of the teepee.

Across from the Wauconda school, the girls were curious about us.
