Description Photograph of one road and many trails leading to Happy Hollow. The large building toward the upper right housed the saloon which Bart Yrella bought from Anton Mlekush about 1900. If one came up from Aldridge Lake, it was said, the town was a shining mass of windows. But if one were above the town, it looked like a deserted village. There were no windows in the back side of the houses, for each was set against the bank. Oftentimes even a dug-out into the hill was a part of the house iteslf. Another purpose served by the hill, as recommended by every hygiene book of the day - the outdoor toilet and the barn were below the level of the house (even if they were just above that of their neighbors).
