Sunday afternoon I drove into town (Deer Lodge, Montana) to check out some things we didn’t see last week. Roy chose to stay home and nap! Being a small town most everything was closed on Sunday afternoon. However, the Cottonwood City was open! It’s a neat little replica of Deer Lodge in the old days. All of the buildings are furnished with items they used back then. A school house, post office, jail, chapel, gold miners house, regular western house were among the buildings I got to see.
Here are some pictures of this little town!
The school teacher lived in a room off to the side of the school house. The all important Jail and an open coffin in front!Inside the Jail cell was awfully corroded but the Sheriff’s area was much nicer The church The Post Office
The gold miners house When I first started seeing these tress I thought the orange things were persimmons and I got very excited. When looking at it close up it’s a bunch of little orange berries. Anyone know what this is? I like to drive through the residential areas of as many towns as I can and I did that today. Here’s some houses in Deer Lodge, Montana. It’s a very clean little town.One of these days someone’s going to come out and fuss at me for taking pictures. So far I am in the clear!
Ya’ll come back now!
