Old Molson

We first discovered the ghost town of Molson while on a state-wide road trip in the MX-5, searching for geocaches to complete two caching challenges:  the Washington Counties Challenge, and the DeLorme Map Challenge. Fun times, back in 2007. We've never come across anyone else who'd ever heard of this historic spot.

On this road trip through the state, we were showing the town to my sister and brother-in-law. Molson is close to the Canadian border, in an area of high rangeland in the Washington Okanogan. Beautiful scenery in an area with a harsh winter climate, gorgeous rivers and lakes, great fishing, and for sports car owners, great twisty roads. We love it here.

If you visit between Memorial Day and Labor Day, you'll be able to visit the museum, which fills the entire 3-story brick schoolhouse, and is run by volunteer labor from the community.
