Marie & Jim Mcdowel

"Moose Horn Trading Post"


Picture taken by Eileen Reid

1946 Jim McDowell and his wife, Marie, put up a log structure, nailed up a set of moose horns and christened their place Moosehorn. 

Moosehorn became a popular meeting place and Marie was an early postmaster. 

Its name lives on at a building which now serves as a school bus lot and garage.

I personally remember Mom, (Eileen Reid) getting Jim to come up to our house with his Wrecker Truck and loud air horn to chase a unwelcome Moose out of our yard during winter snows. Again... Moosehorn was a great name for the McDowell's. He chased Moose out of our yard many times.
