Iron County Heritage Area

This camp was Carl Nelson's headquarters camp. From this camp, he directed the woods operations and sent rail cars of timber south to the main line at Camp 8.

While all of the buildings are gone, artifacts found at the site tell a story of what happened here.

Food cans of various sizes show that canned fruit, vegetables, tomato sauce and condensed milk fortified the men in the winter months when fresh produce and dairy products were scarce. Animal bones and barbed wire suggest that livestock were penned in the camp for use as fresh meat. Lantern parts from kerosene lamps tell archaeologists that electric lights may not have been strung to this camp.
