The Ginseng Farm in Wedgwood

Thorpe cabin

Mr. Thorpe’s log cabin as it looked in the 1930s after the Jesuits began holding Mass there. When Balch purchased the forty-acre tract it had been preserved with only this one structure on the property.

Mr. Thorpe’s log cabin as it looked in the 1930’s, after the Jesuits bought the property and began holding Mass in the cabin (note the cross over the door.) The small structure on the left was added for a place for the priest to rest after travelling out from Seattle University. Photo courtesy of Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church historical records.
