About this Exploration:

Hoglund DugoutOpen from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. No admission.
 
Gustaf and Maria Höglund were some of the earliest Swedish pioneers of the Smoky Valley. They homesteaded 80 acres to the west of Lindsborg. The Höglund's first dwelling was a dugout estimated at 6 foot x 12 foot and they used their wagon as a roof! The Höglunds lived in the dugout from 1868 until 1874. The family later built a frame home over the top using the dugout as a cellar.

This picture shows 12th Avenue south from the top of Coronado Heights. Travel 2.1 miles south on 12th Avenue from the base of Coronado Heights and look for an opening in the tree line on the left side of the road. Pull in and park. The parking area is determined by the iron rail fence. Following the mowed path head east you will find the remains of the Höglund dugout below grade.
