In the heart of the Ottowa National Forest is an old stone cellar dug into the hillside. It was part of the Skoglund Homestead north of Kenton. I could not find any info on the old homestead but I did find that Erik Skoogland and his wife Martha are buried in the Kenton Cemetery. Erik was born in 1856 and died in 1950 and had five children.
The old homestead sits out in the middle of nowhere. It was an interesting trip out to see this historic spot and the old cellar looks like a Hobbit’s home. I did go inside and it has concrete walls and floor and nothing else but dust and dirt. It looks as if it has been a long time since it has been used. The Skoglund’s must have been isolated from civilization deep in the woods, but it sure is a beautiful place.
