Outdoor and small town enthusiasts might appreciate this log cabin for sale in Granite, Oregon (pop.24). The property has beautiful views, ice house, wood shed and outhouse. (Don’t worry, the home also has a bathroom, although I don’t see a toilet). What I do see is a wonderful old cook stove, though!
The town was first founded by gold miners in 1862.
During World War II, gold mining in the US was shut down by the War Production Board which deemed gold mining non-essential. That pretty much shut down the town. Telephone and electric services ceased after the war, and the population went from 86 in 1940 to 2 in 1960.
By 1990, Granite’s population had grown again to 10. As of 2002, Granite had two employers: The Outback—which sold food, fuel, and supplies—and The Lodge. By 2017, the population reached 24, and telephone service had been restored.
