Stories

We love a good story at the Lake of the Woods Museum. We hope you do too. Here we provide you with a sampling of tales that highlight the significant, and sometimes not-so-significant, people, events, activities, locations, etc. of our community.

These stories were first published in our museum newsletter which is produced four times a year. If you would like to receive our newsletters in their entirety, please consider becoming a museum member. It’s one of the perks of a Lake of the Woods Museum membership.
