The historic area of Springstead is historically important because it
represents the transitional history of northern Wisconsin. Beginning with the sugar bush,
which brought the Chippewas to this area, to the cutover area that, evolved into a resort
area in northern Wisconsin. The French Canadians from Quebec came to harvest the white
pine trees. They left behind an original log cabin erected for temporary shelter. It is
the only one still in existence. The next stage was the attempt to establish a post office and
commercial activity at this site.
Imagine an old, nearly forgotten lakeside
town in a tranquil northern Wisconsin forest that harbors eagles, otters, beaver,
whitetail deer, coyotes, wolves and other creatures that have always belonged. Better
still experience it as guests in the restored historic lodging house in the original town
of Springstead. Trade hectic modernity for log walls, furniture used by our ancestors, and
solitude. The beauty of yesteryear with todays conveniences. Go boating or hiking,
drink pure water from the spring-fed well, and feel the past.
