Tom Mix in Du Bois

 

Here's a newly acquired photo from the M.I. McCreight Collection showing Tom Mix's Mercedes in front of Hotel Du Bois.  

No doubt M.I. was there.  He wouldn't miss it.

Mix was visiting friends, and in Du Bois to make a speech to the Rotary Club.  

 

Any godubois folks know the date of Mix's visit?

"THE WIGWAM"

 

For those of you who have visited The Wigwam, I'm sure you asked the question, "How is it still standing?"  

Here's a photo of the roof supports.  

Looks like McCreight used some serious hardwood.

Do you think The Wigwam can handle another winter?

I imagine that he and his contemporaries who were in the lumber industry made sure that high quality materials went into that house.  Plus there were many more forests and tall trees to pick from than we have now.  And yes, I do think it will survive the winter. At least the beams shown above will make it.  

 

I had hoped to get to DuBois this fall but unfortunately couldn't make the trip. Will try again in spring.
