As a child during the depression we lived on WC creek in the Historic Hershey home on Horshoe bend. I trapped all types of fur, and fished this river. The furs brought in much needed cash.

The Hershey home is beautiful. What can you tell us about the history of the green cabin back on the bend. I've heard it was once a hideout for some shady folks. Can you fill us in? It's a neat location. Very quiet and secluded. Some great fishing water as well!

hi,the cabin belonged to a guy by the name of bill mosier he left it to his grandaughter her name is peach it was never used for anything but a place to get away for a time. he lived in lafayette. the neat thing about the cabin was the flying squirrels that were flying around the trees. they had a swing in the yard and I used to set in it and watch them by the hour it was a two story cabin great people great place to loaf for a kid. buck

I do not recall the 'horseshoe bend'. Where was it located?
I grew up ('45-'61) on the banks of the Wild Cat creek where the old pumping station ("Little Chicago") was located. We lived in one of the houses that had been built for the workers there. Many good, and very colorful memories remain of those by-gone days on the banks of the ole wildcat creek.
