This box is located on the corner on Mountain Rd and Old Washington Hwy.

Box in good condition as of Dec 2005.

On one of the corners, you will see a small building with columns around it. There is a space to park your car on Mnt. Rd. There is room for only one car.

This building (actually a room) and columns are what is left of Forest Lodge. Forest Lodge was once a six story resort located west of here. It was built in the late 1800's. It was torn down in 1992 after much decline and multiple uses (apartments and school).

After you read about the Lodge and it's builder John Cussons, look past the displays and see a small stream. Follow the tree line with the stream on your right.

The tree line turns left and as you follow the tree line toward the building, you will see two pine trees that are close together. The letterbox is between these trees and under the pine needles.

Please cover well after you log in.
