The Loon Lake Historical Society was formed to celebrate the town and state centennials -- and was later very influential in saving the Old Schoolhouse. While preparing for the centennials, many old photos were copied and identified. This was the start of our photo collection. We realized then how important saving the history of the area was and how fast the accurate records and family histories were disappearing.
