A Local History Project of the Frank B. Koller Memorial Library
The library is looking for more written information about past and present resorts of this area. We get many summer tourists in the library asking for this type of information and we do not have much to offer. As a result, we are asking you if you have a story to tell about the resort you vacationed at, owned, or knew about, in the town of Manitowish Waters. Just fill out the attached form (you may send more information beyond what the form asks), and send it back to the library. Pictures are also needed if you have any to share.
Thank you for your help, and if you have any questions please call the library at 715-543-2700.
