COMMENTS: No residents for a long time! Take US 20 west from Corvallis to Blodgett, just past Blodgett go south on Tum Tum road about 8 miles. Y intersection to the west takes you there. UPDATE: heads up the peak Oregon page directions are wrong to get there you need travel down highway 20 leaving philomath toward burnt woods then turn left at the burnt woods store on to burntwoods road then turn left onto shot-pouch rd keep going past mulkey cemetery to a y in the road stay to the left then at next y stay to the left again this rd is called woods creek rd at the next intersection you turn right then you keep going straight tell you get to these coordinates 44.5428978N, 123.5720504W and it should be on the left hand side of the road if its still there 4x4 vehicles like jeeps are strongly advised because all these roads are now steppe narrow logging roads PS: did not make it all the way there because i was in a car so im not sure if the remains are still their but i made it about 5 or 6 miles away but if you try going the way suggested by the peak oregon page you will get lost because the logging company has rerouted the roads out there and they are not updated on any GPS or Map website
REMAINS: Cemetery
I don't know too much other than the town was short lived. There are about ten graves in the graveyard. No buildings or anything other than the cemetary. Cemetary is about 100 yards off of road in clearing of forest. Look carefully! Submitted by Tim Smith.
