The Town of Minocqua is in the “heart of the lakes” region of northern Wisconsin. Like every other town in the newer north country, so fortunately situated, it advertised far and wide the inviting charm of its crystal lakes and its cool climate tempered by northern forests (or what remained of them). It was equally generous in its welcome to those who came to patronize its existing resorts and to those who came to add wealth by building new homes, new hotels, new farms.
