History of Long Lake

The year was 1900, and the State of Wisconsin had just completed a long stretch of Hwy. 139, which now connected Cavour, Wis., with Scott Lake, Mich. Like so many towns, villages, settlements of Northern Wisconsin, Long Lake, too, owes its founding to timber. Attracted by timber jobs and farming, people began arriving in Long Lake at the turn of the 20th century. The Chicago-Northwestern Railway Company built the first railroad to Long Lake in 1905. The population of the growing northern town was approximately 350 during these early years. Some of the early settlers worked at Art Leader's sawmill at nearby Fay Lake. Others worked for the Goodman Lumber Company, the preeminent concern of the day. With timber needed to build the great cities of America, early Long Lake boasted a host of logging companies: The Leuder Co., Kingston Co., Menominee Bay Shore Co. and Hale Melrae Co. Over the years, the town developed a thriving little Main Street along the highway. Long Lake supported a school, churches, hotels and one of the best baseball teams around, which competed with Laona, Rhinelander, Crandon, Spruce and Wabeno.
