This is the Koch Cabin which is now located at Shetek State Park in Minnesota. While camping there a couple of weeks back we were able to hike to the cabin and have a look at the way settlers in the United States lived long ago.
Andreas Koch and his wife, Mariah Christina, steeled and built this cabin in 1859 just south of Bloody Lake. This cabin was moved here from its original site in 1962.
Andreas Koch was killed by Dakota Indians on August 20, 1862. Mariah Koch fled with other settlers to the Wright cabin and later to a large wetland area that is now known as Slaughter Slough. Mrs. Koch was captured there. She escaped several days later with the young George Wright.

Seems a pirate has found his old treasure chest….empty. Bummer!
