Military Exhibit

We are honoring the Cable/Namakagon residents who served in the military as one of our special exhibits this summer.

We would greatly appreciate and welcome any information or photos of

residents during their time in the service. 

Logging and Railroad Eras

Come take a look at the tools and

historical pictures of the lumber camps

of the late 1800's.


We are pleased to be able to share with you an exhibit on medical care in Cable as 

Dr. Neer and Dr. Kelsey were a part of

our history being the only two doctors

back in the day. 

Area Schools

Did you know that there were five rural schools in the surrounding areas and the Cable school has always been in the same location since the early 1900's? Take a look at the many yearbooks, pictures and the artifacts of our local school.


The history and photos of the Cable and Namakagon area resorts along with a display of the Telemark and Lakewoods Resorts

can be found in this display.

Founding Families

This exhibit highlights some of the early settlers in the area. Maybe you'll even recognize a few names and learn about

where they immigrated from.
