A lumber baron’s estate

In 1900, Frank D. Stout inherited part of his father’s lumber fortune, moved to Chicago, and within a few years was one of the wealthiest men in the country.  In 1903, following his company’s construction of a railway station near the island, Mr. Stout decided to move his family and servants to northwestern Wisconsin for the summer months.  He modeled the lodge after other famous Adirondack camps of the world.  He used four-inch-thick plank floors and carved beams imported from Germany for its construction.  Cabins were erected for his children as well as construction of a boathouse, recreation hall, and servant’s quarters.
