Log Chain Station was the sixth relay stop after leaving St. Joseph. This is a view to the northeast along the trail and across “log chain bog.” It was named Log Chain because wagons would get stuck in the mud and have to be pulled out with log chains. The modern-day, white building in the background has been built around the original station – maintaining the original fireplace and walls.
