Walked back in history, from the days I'd get mad at my parents and walk down this trail to this ghost town to calm down. Grass is so overgrown! I Walked the patted down trails, to the foundations I assumed were still there and I cannot see any!!! I will be back in the spring when it's been patted down from the snow and I can see better.

The location was difficult for me to find because I was following the directions of the GPS location which happened to be wrong. After brushing through the trees I came in from behind it. Still a neat place. The proper GPS location is Latitude 44.41999 Longtitude -79.80973. Or 44?25'12.0"N 79?48'35.0"W Just follow the trail until you seen the plaque

Josephine is a old railroad town where the train would drop off the men for Fort Willow. Fort Willow is off of George Johnston Rd. Josephine is named after a man named Budd which maintained the land in the 1800's.
