Wisdom Washington and the Homestead Cemetery
Name: Windom (Lewis County)
GPS: 46.412606, -122.638418
Directions: Only accessible during hunting season when Weyerhaeuser opens the roads to the public. The exact location of the “town” is debatable, but it was likely about a mile north along Cedar near the Wisdom Mine where Cuts Road and Cedar Creek Road intersect.
Description: Nothing remains of Wisdom except for a small graveyard called “Homestead Cemetery” that contains two graves. The deceased are Sarah Marinth Withrow and Mira Cordelia McKinna.
Windom was likely named after the Windom mine and seems to have contained less then a dozen houses and farms. It is unclear how large of an operation the mine was, and if it’s workers considered themselves part of Windom or just went there for supplies.
