2017 Road Trip — River Bottom Homestead

Filed under: Landscapes — Tags: , — Frank @ 9:30 PM

Within the CW Russell NWR, a short but muddy walk from the road, lies the remains of an old Missouri River homestead.

Two generations of log cabin are present… an older wood chinked structure and a newer cement chinked structure. The older structure once had a sod roof. The newer structure was used recently enough that it once had electricity.

There are also the remains of a number of outbuildings (barns and sheds) as well as remnants of fences and corrals.

  1. Another great compilation of images! I particularly like the older structures. Good thinking on including some foreground on most of them – gave me a sense of where I was.
