BY RICHARD SITLER, THE SOUTHERN

The Southern recently reported that the boardwalk building in Makanda is for sale. 

This news brought back memories of a visit I made to Makanda before I moved here to work for The Southern. It was October of 2008 and I came to hike at and stay at Giant City State Park. I explored the area and took photos. It was my first time in Makanda, and I felt like I had stumbled on a lost treasure. I thought then that I wouldn’t mind relocating to this area.

The photos here were taken during my visit in 2008, and the captions are from then.
