Squatters made Abercrombie a community

Ed Apperson at Miller Point in Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park.

If you’ve been to the Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park headquarters, you may have noticed a statue of Ed Apperson, the first on-site state park ranger at Abercrombie.

What’s missing in the replica is the green Department of Natural Resources State Parks truck, which Ed drove as he kept a watchful eye on activities within the park boundaries.
