Northwest Stories: The Iron Man of the Hoh

Season: 1
Eps: 105

In the late 1800s, John Huelsdonk headed up the Hoh River to tame the last frontier in America, the interior of the Olympic Peninsula. He stood against the Federal Government, who wanted to turn his homestead into a National Park; the case went all the way to the Supreme Court. Huelsdonk won the court case and his family still lives on the land today.
