August Newsletter posted and Historical Monte Cristo Resort Information

August newsletter is posted on the newsletters page.

With the emphasis on the townsite cabin maintenance this season, I find it appropriate to make available some history on the townsite cabins and former resort.

David Cameron has provided this excellent summary of the townsite resort. MC Resort Purchase Essay

Also, Jim Sekulich provided a copy of a 1965 publication which was available to resort visitors in the mid 1960’s. The publication and drawings were created by the resort owners, including Ken and Flo Schilaty. Most interesting is the resort’s hopes to build a gondola to the top of Wilman’s Peak and provide the “Greatest Winter Sports Area in the NorthWest”. 7-1-1965 MC Mountaineer

It is the MCPA’s hope to maintain that same enthusiasm for the Monte Cristo area (minus the gondola, of course).
