Fishing resorts were established across Lake Vermilion during the early decades of the 20th century. One hundred years later most have disappeared into the pages of history. This week, the Lake Vermilion Archives and LakeVermilion.net acquired two photographs, c. 1925, of Birchwood, a resort believed to have once been located on Everett Bay.

Each year many of the details of these businesses vanish from our collective memories. LakeVermilion.net encourages anyone with photographs, stories or recollections of this history, or any Lake Vermilion history, are encouraged to contact us. info*AT*lakevermilion.net
