Home Valley

Passing Wind Mountain, just before reaching the mouth of the Wind River, the highway enters this once-modern farming community, with a post office, cabins, a schoolhouse, and a few dwellings. In the forested hills nearby were logging operations. The town was settled primarily by Norwegian immigrants and originally called Heim Dal in 1893 by John Kanekberg, which postal authorities translated to “Home Valley.” Now it is strictly a residential community.
