Arriving in the fall of 1868, Gustaf Höglund proceeded to dig a dugout to serve as some protection. The dugout served as the family home until 1874. The Smoky Valley Historical Association maintains the Höglund Dugout, now a historical site marking an example of an early Scandinavian home. Corner of 12th Avenue and Swensson. Look for an opening in the treeline on the east side of the road. The parking area is surrounded by an iron railing fence. Find the dugout on foot by following the mowed path to the east.
