Carl Boettcher arrived in Alder in 1895. Carl was the brother-in-law of Henry Lutkens. Carl brought his wife and six children. Unfortunately, Carl’s wife died just two year later.
The family was living in a small shack and neighbors got together and built him a hewed cedar log house.
The Boettchers have been active part of the community since Carl came to town. Expect to see their name throughout this site.
