This exhibit explores a piece of Lake Namekagon shoreline property and the three generations who cared, loved, and preserved the 872 acre estate outside of Cable WI.  In 1999, Mary Griggs Burke donated the property to the U.S. Forest Service ensuring the property would continue to be cared for and remain intact well into the future. The exhibit will be on view until October 30, 2017.
