Mineral Hill Road
Mineral Hill Road

I’ve just been told about a great site — minerallake.com – which has lots of local pictures, like this one. This is Mineral Hill Road near the lodge. The sign above the road says “Mineral Lake Inn,” which is now know as Mineral Lake Lodge.

“The three story cedar log lodge was constructed in 1906 by Scandinavian residents of the Mineral area who were experienced old-world craftsmen. The log workmanship is outstanding. Herman and August Ahstrand and Johann Carlson built the Inn for a wealthy young investor from the east by the name of Gilfellin. He was the son of an Englishman who manufactured one of the earliest radios made, Gilfellin radios.” (Per minerallakelodge.com)
