Remembering Lugert near #AltusOK

According to Wikipedia, Lugert was once a thriving community with a bank, hotels, and a lumberyard.

Now, it normally sits at the bottom of Lake Lugert ... normally ... except there's a drought.

A foundation is one of the few memories remaining from Lugert.

A slab is normally well seen from both the road and the lake.  The overgrowth has it well hidden.

Proof that the lake owns the land normally.

A view from the railway looking to the switch at what is now named Lugert.

Here's Lugert with a pile of rail ties nearby.

One can easily see the lake level is low.
