Description

Old Molson ghost town is a couple of miles from the Canadian border in Okanogan County in Washington State. Founded in 1900, the first railroad called the Great Northern was announced to be built through town. When a local farmer, J.H. McDonald, heard about it, he undertook to evict the entire town claiming Molson had been developed on his homestead. Wrangling continued for twenty years in the courts.

In the meantime, unable to obtain deeds to their lots, some of the residents started a New Molson a half-mile away. Seizing up the situation, L.L. Work built a Bank in Old Molson on skids. With teams of horses he moved it from place to place on a county road which ran through town, all the while conducting business as usual. Bloody fist fights often attended his settling the bank on a downtown lot.

Each night Homesteader McDonald, who had brought the original suit against the town, strung barbed wire around the bank. Each morning Banker L.L. Work clipped the barb wire to allow access for his customers.
