Much like the original founders of the Historical Society did when compiling family history for The Pine, The Plow and the Pioneer books, we are reaching out to longtime families to update their stories and to newer arrivals and visitors for their stories, which will help us write the story of Three Lakes today.
Is your family one of the many who built Three Lakes from a logging camp into the town it is today? Did your family discover Three Lakes on a vacation and made it their long-time summer home? How many generations of your family have lived or vacationed here? Did you age from a member of the Aqua Devils to a retiree? A past camper? A business owner? Or are you a new arrival or visitor, just discovering the beauty and allure of Three Lakes? Tell us your Three Lakes journey.
To get started, the museum archives and the local history roomat the Demmer Library are available for research. You can share your stories, pictures, history and more by email, email@example.com, in person at the museum, or by mail to TLHS PO Box 250, Three Lakes, WI 54562.
We will contact you if we have questions or need to verify something. All stories, pictures and information will be added to the TLHS & Museum archival database to be shared with members and visitors. If you do not want your submission shared more widely, include that note with your story.
We are hoping that much like the Waterfront Association has "Lake Captains," we are looking for "Road Captains." If you have a special interest in helping write the history of your area of Three Lakes, let us know and we can help put you in touch with families on your road with materials and guidance on how to participate. Contact: Kyle McMahon firstname.lastname@example.org Susan Kelly Panian email@example.com for more information about our "Road Captain" project.
