Camp Wandawega, in Elkhorn, Wis., about 90 miles north of Chicago, was for years run by the Catholic church primarily for Latvian immigrants. Its origins are racier: It was originally built in 1925 as a site for prostitution and illicit liquor sales during Prohibition.” – texastinyhomes.com
Photo taken by Theodore Roosevelt himself, of his Elkhorn Ranch veranda.
After his wife and mother died in 1884, only hours apart, Roosevelt became depressed. He moved back to the Dakota territories, where he had built his Maltese Cross Cabin the previous year. Finding the location too busy for his taste, in June 1884 he laid claim to a second ranch, which he called Elkhorn. He left the bulk of the everyday work to his managers and hands, devoting his own time mostly to hunting and writing.
This little guy has been flying around the courtyard at 22 Elkhorn Dr., near Bayview Village, North York/Toronto. He’s very approachable. We’re pretty sure it’s an escaped pet. This photo was taken August 10, 2011. Hopefully he/she finds its home before the cold weather arrives, anyone have any ideas?
