This is a picture of the Cabaret Bar from the book when Wayne Westerberg was sitting and telling the author of the book about McCandless. Cabaret is the only bar in Carthage and in the book McCandless visited the bar a time or two.


This is a farmer elevator mill in Carthage. I don't know if this was the actual farmer elevator mill that McCandless worked at in Carthage, but seeing that the town is only 1.5 square miles, I don't see why it wouldn't be that same one.
