Pine Junction

Address: Hwy. 285, S. of Shaffer's Crossing

This landmark was originally called Pine Grove. A ranch with the same name was located in the vicinity of an old toll road and extended a short distance down Pine Grove Gulch (or Pine Gulch, now County Road #126). A school was built here in 1868 on hand-hewn logs which were removed in 1924. Highway 285 now runs over this old site. The present name was entered on the map after the highway was completed.
