H. HELMKE, Prop. constructed a rustic lodge from nar tive rock and fine timber, with dimensions of 32x52 feet, with a 12- ft porch on three sides of the building. It is one of the finest shelter louses in all of the state's parks. A lookout on top of the lodge, from which-a good view oft the tract and the city of Estherville can be had, is one of its outstanding features. The park itself consists of 190 acres of jeautiful timber land which lies in a valley at the southwest edge of the city. Two miles of new gravel road nave 'been constructed in the park. Is Natural Beauty Spot. In setting aside the park for the enjoyment of the people of Iowa it has been the aim to preserve for generations a where native flowers, birds, and trees will continue to grow unhampered. It is regarded, without exception, as one of the most beautiful spots in Iowa. The park has been named in memory of old Fort Defiance, constructed in 1862 by Company A of the northern border brigade of Iowa, to protect settlers from Indian attacks. It was built following the Spirit Lake massacre of 1857 and the New Ulm massacre of 1SG2, while pioneers still feared other Indian outbreaks. The fort, long ago torn down to make room for business buildings, still lingers in the memories of early pioneers who recall times when settlers gathered there for .protection. The fort was 200 feet square and consisted of a log house and several barns and stables, connected and enclosed by a stout wood fence built of 3-in. plank. It stood at the corner of Gth and Howard streets, which is now in the business district of Estherville. During the three-day celebration here relics of early days, reminiscent of the time when early settlers endured the hardships of pioneer times, will be on display and these antiques of local historic value are already being brought to the headquarters of the dedication committee. All pioneers are extended special invitations to be present at the old settlers' picnic to be held at noon on Thursday, October 15, in the park. In addition to the dedication of the park there will also be a homecoming celebration of the Estherville high school and junior college, dedication of the paving of highway 0 across Emmet county, and a festival in the Estherville city park under the auspices of the American Legion post.
