Arriving in the fall of 1868, Gustaf Hoglund 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 Hoglund Dugout, now a historical site marking an example of an early Scandinavian home.
Directions: Starting at the base of Coronado Heights, travel south 2.1 miles on 12th Avenue. 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.
