The "Hole in the Wall" Dynamite Shack.
This was my family’s hunting shack for many, many years.
My grandfather got it via a land lease through the county back in 1950something.
The CC Camp that was located just down the road at Camp Smith Lake used this building to store dynamite.
Per regulations, the dynamite had to be stored so for away from the camp.
The dynamite was used to make many of the fire lanes in the are that are used today.
The walls are two feet thick and made of rock and concrete. The ceiling was poured and the timbers were used to support the false work.
My father was a junior in High School when the put the "Window" in. 2 very long days of pounding.
Many, many good times and memories happened in this stone building.
We had to give it up due to a DNR ruling.
So please enjoy this little northwoods secret.
NOTE- The outhouse & bunks came from the old camp. As did a picnic table and barrel stove that is no longer in the building. We had to put a new roof on the outhouse. That is the most expensive outhouse in the northwoods.
