Arrowhead was essentially a

one street town hugging the

base of the Selkirk Mountains

along the northeast shore of

Upper Arrow Lake. Most

building were of wood

construction. It was said that

the women in the upper widow of the

Selkirk Hotel on John's layout were plying

the "oldest profession known", which

explained why one was scantily clad, if at

all. G. T. Newman was a friend of Johns.

John retired the first locomotive he owned

to a park in the center of town which was

surrounded by a green picket fence and also, typical for the time, sported a

gazebo.
