On May 23rd Travis Bruegeman was presented a quilt of valor for his time served in the Marines.  The Cottonwood Quilt of Valor group (Lynn Sonnen, Judy Forsmann, and Milton Baerlocher) were there to present it to him.  Milton said that Shirley Baerlocher had picked this quilt out especially for Travis before she passed away.  Helping hold the quilt is Travis' son Zaylor and Milton's grandson Drew Hottinger.  Photo submitted by Kristi Bruegeman.

Last week we had a photo of the original location of the Cottonwood Report/Camas Prairie Chronicle. Above is the second location from about 1910ish to 1947 when the current building was completed. The dentist office and the Chronicle are now The Habit while the next two buildings down have been combined into the current Riener’s Grocery. We are guessing this photo is from the early 1910’s as the Chronicle changed its named to the Cottonwood Chronicle later in that decade. Seubert’s Insurance moved into the Chronicle location sometime after the Chronicle moved out and were there for many years. Photo courtesy of Don Kopczynski. Click on the photo for a  larger view.
The Phoenix Hotel. We believe this was one of several hotels to occupy the are the area where the Royale Room and old Texaco Station are now located. This appears to have been the largest of those hotels. Don Hoene tells us that a couple of different hotels in that general location burned down. Photo courtesy of Don Kopczynski.

Cottonwood School about 1922. It was located on the property the hospital sets on now. Photo courtesy of Gus Hoene. Click on the photo for a larger view.

The above 4 photos made up a photo collage in Gus Hoene’s photo collection depicting scenes of Cottonwood. The top photo appears to be looking to the southeast from west of town. The large house looks like the one at the top of Brewery Hill that Frank Bruno used to live in. You can see the old St. Mary’s Church steeple in the second one. The third appears to be looking down Main Street from the west. The bottom photo looks like the house on King Street but doesn’t appear to have the hill behind it.
