Historic Cabins along St. Croix River

While paddling these rivers, I’ve admired the older cabins tucked into the woods. Often, they are barely visible from the water, with humble dimensions and painted to blend into the forest. They are from a bygone era, many built in the early 1900s.

Two families generously allowed me to photograph within their cabins, sharing their rich heritage. It was wonderful to hear stories of these now mature people playing, swimming, and fishing as kids with their grandparents or great-grandparents who built these get-a-ways.
